Welcome to the "Daily in" June 2019 Challenge (aka DIC) here at Pentax Forums!

Aim of the Game: Shoot daily and post one picture each day of the month to this group challenge using any camera gear you want. 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, while instead being able to use any lens/gear we want each and 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 view and comment on them. Conversely, it’s hoped that you will comment on the pictures posted by the other members as well. Please don’t be shy, even if you don’t 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, we’ll soon be enjoying the camaraderie.

The rewards: Daily shooting and sharing is great fun and a real challenge! As with the Single In Challenge, you’ll see what other members achieve with their selected gear which will sometimes be the same gear you’ve chosen for that day. In the comment banter you’re likely to pick up some photographic tips and ideas too. As the month progresses it can become quite demanding to keep shooting and posting every day (it’s a challenge, remember) but you’ll always be encouraged by other participants. Worried about LBA and GAS? Sorry, this game won’t 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 to the daily threads; you only have to do this once. The group’s name is “Daily Challenge (By Month)”. You’ll 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, so members can follow that link and comment on your images. That's it!

More notes:
** Some of us may be participating in both the Daily Challenge and the Single In challenges for the current month. When this is the case, please post a different image 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, here is the Flickr group to join: Daily Challenges (Pentax Forums)
Please remember to add your posted images to this Flickr group.

Each day you’ll 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 photographer’s 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, in your post and/or on the linked photo page, please specify the camera/lens combination with your picture eg 'K5 & DA15 Ltd'. This makes it easy and helpful for others to note what gear you’re 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 you’re reading now is the 'Discussion Thread' for Game > Daily In June 2019 Challenge. It's is a separate discussion thread from the picture posting thread referred to above, so you’ll probably want to subscribe to this discussion thread here as well to keep up with activities and develop a rapport with other Challenge members. It’s the place to ask questions, offer advice, share concerns, suggest improvements, and often just participate in general banter related to this month’s 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 except for the obvious key and major difference that this daily 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, don’t worry about it. Just keep shooting! If you have any problems, please ask. Come and try!

I do. I pay about $60 per year for domain hosting on a shared server. I also host a few friends sites on it and used to run my wife's biz on it.

This is actually the main reason I use my own domain for photo sharing. At some point I discovered myself preferring a small number of visitors to my photos, just you DICr's... I don't even show my stuff to my family unless I'm asking them to decide my daily photo for me. It's just my personality I guess that I like to keep a low profile. There are the very rare occasions when I have photos I feel are good enough that I'd like more people to see them, but the feeling passes quickly haha... Maybe someday the mood will change again I don't know.

And just came across a thread on another board where a GR3 has a spot the owner can't remove, so the problem lives on next gen at least to some degree.

Had a quick stroll with the GR2 through the annual Orange CA classic car show yesterday.

Some first shots today and yesterday with my first GR, a new to me GR2. Enjoying the camera so far but had a GR3 on order that I cancelled right before ship and still dealing with some regret. I opted out for a 500 actuation, clean-sensored GR2 plus the 21mm lens & adapter for $495 and in the moment felt like it was a better deal for quite a bit less money... But now that I'm shooting with it I keep thinking how much I'd like some of those new features that I had studied up on. But, I am of course still far from comfortable with using the GR2 and have been generally pleased with the experience so far, and know my attachment will only grow...

The biggest nag so far for me is that I'm trying to keep the thing in a velvet pouch inside my shorts pocket. The primary reason I got this camera was for the pocket-ability but am concerned about the potential to collect sensor dust... So shopping hard for a better alternative to the velvet pouch... Every time I wrestle the thing in and out of the velvet pouch, I'm thinking how I wouldn't need to be doing that with the GR3.

Maybe things have changed.. I haven't been active on flickr in many years. Back in those days I would get followed a bunch from explores, and if, as it often was, by people that I liked what they were posting, I would follow them back, and it became a large list over many years. Then one day it occurred to me how I would visit/comment/fave so many who never reciprocated and I discovered this phenomenon. I'm sure you've seen it, the users (especially flickr celebs) who have many thousands of followers but only follow a small number of people themselves.. Well that's how they get there. It was a common practice back then for sure, but maybe it's not as common anymore.

Congrats! Careful though, a lot of 'followers' are just doing that in effort to get you to follow them back, then they turn around and dump you.. They're just trying to get followers to make themselves feel special. I used to use a greasemonkey script years ago to see who doesn't follow me back/dumped me, and had the pleasure of dumping all those types in return..
