    Come and join us in the Oktoberfest prime challenge. More information can be found here https://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/showthread.php?t=186520

    Ill try to make what the Oktoberfest prime challenge is in a nut shell...

    It is pretty simple. You pick a Prime Lens and commit to using that lens(or pair) alone for the month of October. It is also possible to increase the challenge to yourself by accepting a bolt-on (b+w, all manual, pic-a-day, shoot wide open, spot metering only or anything else that might help your photography).
    Then start a thread with your name and choice of lens in which you can post your photos and in which others can post comments, encouragement and criticisms. Lastly, please add a link to your Oktoberfest gallery into your signature line so that we can easily jump to your gallery to review your month's work.
    The two main points to remember- we are here to have fun and learn more about photography

    Some prime challenge lingo...
    player- you may take a break if you go on holiday visit a location you feel needs another lens

    pure- you will only use the given prime lens for one month

    prime- you pick a single prime for the month
    prime pair- you pick a pair of primes and only use these 2 lenses

    plus you can have as many bolt on themes/ challenges as you like. eg. black and white, manual shooting only, no macro, pic-a-day, 30 pics for the month etc
