My thinking has always been the former - just shoot your single prime for the meme, but you may (of course) shoot whatever else you want in your off-forum life. But to be truly hardcore, you'd want to fully immerse yourself in your chosen lens, so just post stuff from it for the month.@Chris101: I joined the Cafe earlier this year, so I have not been around for Oktoberfest yet. I have two questions:
1. Is it accurate to call it "hardcore" by posting results in the Oktoberfest meme from only 1 prime only for the whole month but still shooting other lenses for other work? Or is the intent to leave everything but one prime at home for the entire month without exception?
Themes are wide open. My first Octoberfest was a random collection of images, I have also told stories, explored techniques and highlighted my family. Anything you like will work.2. Is the intent that each person's theme be extremely cohesive for the month, or is the expectation simply to show our vision through a single focal length?
