    Will we be doing the prime challenge for October this year?
     
  2. Of course we will! :smile: I had such fun last year, I ended up doing a 366 project this year. It was boring during summer months but I am warming up again for the fall.

    Well as we roll around to the middle of the month, I guess we/I should find out who "hosts" it and where announcement threads can be posted as stickies, similar to the collective shoot. Ill hit up 2 mods/admin that I know frequent this section a bit, more to follow from someone....

    Tim, I see it's that time of year again! If you need any administrative help, just holla!

    I haven't decided yet if I will participate as a shooter or not, as it depends on prior photo commitments.
     
  8. Thanks for posting this Tim. It is really no "big deal" to host the event for the month- I would be pleased if you would like to take on the role! There are plenty of us here who will be willing to help out if something is needed.
    I have a few primes and hope to be able to play again in Octoberfest- but this time I want to put myself out of my comfort zone and make things awkward- best way to learn IMHO.

    As for the rules, do we want to do the standard one prime challenge? Once we decide on this Ill see if we can get a sticky in the lens lust and general discussion forum. Cant wait Im deciding between 2 primes....
     
  10. Almost stated that the Volksfest in Stuttgart is better. I will join this years Oktoberfest .

    Chris or Dave can we get a sticky in the lens lust and general discussion forum? I guess I should ask if I need to post one for you to sticky... Thanks for your help.
     
  12. Hmmm I'm always up for a good prime challenge - might even try to shoot with my nifty fifty instead of my 300 (that puts me out of my comfort zone too)
     
  13. Nice to see you'll have a DSLR ready in hand Paul. Hopefully you can keep it for the entire month!:eek: I remember your July Challenge.

    Count me in for Octoberfest!

    If you want an announcement, write one up, post it anywhere (in this thread would be fine) and send me a PM with the address of the post you want turned into a sticky/announcement.

    Well I dont see why we can't start our threads. Guessing that since it is Oktoberfest it will be one prime. I got 2 lens I thinking of choosing between, one is a more "normal" lens and the other has been labled a "one trick pony" which I aim to show is not the case. Anyhow as for a mulligan dealing with your boy's baptism, I would say why not. I try to shoot at least 95% of the month with the choosen prime and make exceptions for myself on special occasions(going on a trip, birthday, wedding, etc). So with that Ill make a quick post on the rules and have Chris post it for us in the lens lust and general discussion area. Also if you got any pointers shoot'em this way, I guess Ill coordinate as I opened my yapper first.
