Daily in January 2017 - discussion thread

Welcome to the "Daily in" January 2017 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 any day of the month. There is no limitation to what camera gear you use for this challenge.

Additionally for film shooters, you can post your film shot for the day according to the day you scan your image, if you want. We just ask that you also note the approximate date when the image was exposed, if possible. And of course any gear, film type and exposure setting details you might be able to provide are always appreciated.

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 and challenge! 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' started in January 2016 when a few regular members of the 'Single In Challenge' wanted to have a similar daily shooting/posting challenge format and interactive culture with the key difference of being able to switch the gear up during the month whenever desired. That said, if you're here considering whether or not to join 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 shooting daily 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/interact with 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 January 2017 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.

** If you've been shooting daily pictures during the challenge month but have been away from the internet or have been too busy to post and want to back post your images to the daily threads for the month, please go for it. It is recommended in this case to also come back to the monthly thread here and post a comment to let the group know and provide some details to inspire us to visit your images.

This FAQ (made by Zorglub) may be helpful to understand the challenge process. It was created for the Single In Challenge so everything there also applies to this Daily Challenge with the key and major difference being that this challenge is not bound to the use of one Single lens for the month.

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

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 January?

I'm in! I'll be shooting a new GRii and my tax outlook is good so a K-1 suddenly went from dream to reality. I'll be using both.

Daily in will be a catch all for me. A lot of m43 I'd expect. Newest lens is the Panasonic 20 f/1.7.

Good idea, thanks Uncle Vanya for steering me here, this month i am doing single in with a tak bolted to one of my Fuji bodies, I will be pushed to get that one done daily to be fair so i will be here for February for certain with Fuji. If I manage this month to get two good shots a day the I will participate here (I know from experience that will mean both threads get dog shots my back up subject )

I will try although I do miss a fair few days. I may try to drag out some of my old cameras for fun. m43 has me spoiled for size now and my poor old Pentax cameras have been in the closet.

I recently sold my 17mm f/2.8 Olympus and picked this 20mm up. I liked the Olympus but couldn't justify both.

Is there a January Daily In thread yet? It's been nice to take a month off from SIC but still do the Daily In with whatever lens is on the camera. It's snowing today so I hope to try out a few different ideas and lenses.
here we are ☺️

Do you get a 6 month pin?

With the arrival on the 18-125mm WR, I can honestly say that my needs are met, now it's nothing but want!
