Thanks for hosting Glenn with a very nice image. I did take a pass at it last week but didn't like the result below well enough and was going to try again but then wasn't able to get back to it...

Welcome to the "Daily in" September 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 September 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!

Who's in?

Sunday September 1 = sad

Saturday September 14 = shadow

So maybe something like - everyone who wants to participate can go through the previous week, say for example on Monday, and submit the photo they liked best from that previous week? Maybe it's not even a vote, since that would be work that probably not many would bother with, but this would be just a nice way to honor shots that stand out to us. That'd be interesting (to me)... Maybe from there we could vote for the shot of the month? That might make it something that gives that monthly DIC some additional identity.

Here's the shot I would have chosen (no brainer) if we'd started this past Monday.. Rod's Daily from 7/16:


(Is it just me or has flickr made it difficult to share/embed photos? Probably just me but the sharing options don't display as they used to. Had to use my greasemonkey script to get an image link)

Another idea is to do shot of the day but just for one day of the week. Maybe Saturday for example. Then on Monday we do the vote...And like the themes, it's optional. So if people don't want their shots considered they could opt out with their entries on the Daily page for those days.

Ok it's settled then. Just wanted to be sure before I start the next round.



An interesting idea, one that might have a secondary benefit of generating some motivation haha!

How would this be conducted with the least possible inconvenience for all? Just thinking out loud but maybe it would warrant the use of a third party polling site*, then the 'winner' of the previous day could assume the honor of posting the next poll and announcing winner here? In this scenario the next question would be 'how many participants/votes would it take to call the winner?' What if it's a tie? Also thinking we'd want to do it a day behind current day, so everyone would have equal chance to post and review all the entries.

*Poll - Should we start doing 'shot of the day'?

Based on some of the comments above, should we change this photo game/group starting in August to 'Daily in Forever', or 'Daily for Forever'? In this case, I suppose that thread would just go on indefinitely and people would drop in and out as they please... Or shall we keep it going as we have been in the monthly segments?

I'm fine with it either way, though would vote to keep it monthly if we were/are deciding that way... (Too bad there is no polling option in the middle of a thread, or by editing the OP).
