Daily in June 2016

Welcome any and all to the "Daily in" June 2016 Challenge (aka DIC) here at Pentax Forums!

Aim of the Game: Shoot daily with any camera/lens you want and post one picture each day of the month to this group challenge. Our desire when starting this challenge was to be similar in culture to the popular "Single In" Challenge (aka SI or SIC) here at Pentax Forums, but to instead be able to use any lens/gear we want to each and any day of the month. There is no limitation to what camera gear you use for this challenge.

Commenting: Posting our pictures to the daily threads for the month allows other participants to comment on them. Conversely, itís hoped that you will comment on the pictures posted by the other members as well. Please donít be shy if you donít have much photographic experience or are a Forum newbie. Your personal reactions to photographs are just as valid as any. We aim to be a friendly group and with regular commenting, weíll soon be enjoying the camaraderie.

The rewards: Daily shooting and sharing is great fun! As with the Single In Challenge, youíll see what other members achieve with their selected gear that will sometimes be the same gear youíve chosen for that day. In the comment banter youíre likely to pick up some photographic tips and ideas. As the month progresses it can become quite demanding to keep shooting and posting every day (itís a challenge, remember) but youíll always be encouraged by other participants. Worried about LBA and GAS? - this game wonít help you!

Note: This 'Daily Challenge' was started in January 2016 by a few regular members of the 'Single In Challenge' who after participating in many Single In Challenges themselves desired to have a similar daily shooting/posting challenge format and interactive culture with the key difference of being able to switch our gear up during the month whenever desired. That said, if you're here considering whether or not to accept the Daily Challenge for a month and haven't yet tried a month of the Single In Challenge, we enthusiastically encourage you to try one... Simply put, spending a whole month of daily shooting and sharing with the same lens is a great way to get to know your gear.

How to participate:

1. Join the Group to be able to post pictures; you only have to do this once. The groupís name is ďDaily Challenge (By Month)Ē. Youíll find a clickable link on that forum page to join the group.

2. Store your pictures in an on-line album somewhere. This could be the Pentax Forum, or others such as Flickr, etc. Flickr is the most commonly used host, and makes it easiest for others to comment on your pictures.

3. Post your daily image into the daily picture thread in the Daily Challenge (By Month) group page. That image should link to where your image is hosted. That's it!

** Some of us may be participating in both the Daily Challenge and the Single In challenges for the month. When this is the case, it should be a different image posted to each challenge for the same day.

** If you are going to be linking to your images in a Pentax Forum album, just ask for advice below if needed.

** If you are posting a link to Flickr, just click on the sharing icon below your selected picture at flickr.com and a window will open displaying the BB code. Select the 1024px size, then copy and paste the BB code into the Daily Challenge (By Month) group page in the Pentax Forum.

** If you're a Flickr member, then here is the Flickr group to join: Daily Challenges (Pentax Forums)
Please remember to add your posted images to this Flickr group.

Each day, youíll see a new thread of pictures grow in the Daily Challenge (By Month) group page. By clicking on each picture in the daily thread you should be redirected to the photographerís image page wherever it's hosted and there you will be able to add a comment and read those of others.

When you post your picture each day to the daily thread, please specify the camera/lens combination with your picture eg 'K5 & DA15 Ltd'. This makes it easy for others to note what gear youíre using. This is especially helpful for this Daily Challenge where our chosen lenses and/or cameras for each day may be changing frequently.

The thread youíre reading now is the 'Discussion Thread' for Game > Daily In June 2016 Challenge. It's is a separate discussion thread from the picture posting thread referred to above, so youíll probably want to subscribe to this discussion thread here as well to keep up with activities and develop a rapport with other Challenge members. Itís the place to ask questions, offer advice, share concerns, suggest improvements, and often just participate in general banter related to this monthís challenge.

This FAQ (made by Zorglub) may be helpful which was created for the Single In Challenge. Everything there also applies to this Daily Challenge with the key difference being that we are not binding this challenge to the use of one lens for the whole month.

There is no limitation to what camera gear you use for this challenge.

Here we go! It is easier than it might seem at first. If you miss any days, donít worry about it. If you have any problems, please ask. Come and try!

So who's joining me for June?

I'm going to try this group in June. In being with the SIC for the past six years, I thought this a good idea. Lots of the times I've played in SIC, I still change lenses and use my zooms but until now, there was no place to post those shots taken with my zooms. I know you've been having these Daily in challenges for awhile now, I just decided today to give it a try.

Definitely in for June. There are so many lenses waiting for a spin on my newish K-1, but my wide ones will be featured now they have to compete with my just-purchased DFA15-30.

I'm in. For now, this format might be a better fit for me than the Single In's was. There are too many lenses I want to try on the K-1 and the freedom this game offers is a nice indulgence

I'm still going to be away for a few more months as there's no pc at our summer cottage, and only mobile "broadband". I must say I found my "new lens every day" Daily in March to be a quite interesting challenge. Could be a way for the seasoned Singlers here to get through their lenses a bit quicker than one new a month

Anyway, all the best to all y'alls.

I'm spending waaaaay to much time on this, so I'm out. Expect to see some gear on the marketplace.

I'm out of this too. I can't do both this month. Too much going on and don't have time for both.

June Daily In was a good opportunity to use a variety of lenses, but I may never catch up on posting.

July starts off with the rental of a 70mm and a 77mm, so I'll be using those a lot until Tuesday when they have to be returned.

That should be an interesting shootout. I "discovered" my 70 through this challenge - hadn't used it much before, but now it spends a lot of time on my camera. At the same time I see lots and lots of stunning results from the 77. Looking forward to your findings
