Day to Day Challenge

After the April 2020 Challenge, several of us expressed their wish to just continue on, which lead to Daily May. The threads showed a nice participation rate, so that can be considered a good success as well.

The thing that some people struggled with wasn't daily posting - but posting an image shot on that day. So, for Day to Day, I'll relax the rules even further, but I'll still set a challenge in the end:
  • You are invited to contribute every - after all, that's the purpose of a rolling daily challenge.
  • If you miss a day, make up for it by posting several images when next participating; you can say so if you want.
  • However, only post several images *if* you feel the need to compensate. Let's keep the threads focused and compact.
  • Try to keep it up: Post on as many days in a row as you can, and really try to post images shot on the day you post.
    • It's what keeps you going; retrieving images from your stash means a break (in both senses of the word - but only one of them is desireable).
    • A tip: Do at least three consecutive days - or even better, a whole week or ten days; in some ways, it's quite like establishing a healthy habit - just do it for a while, you'll adapt.
  • If you find daily shooting onerous, here are a few tips:
    • Don't look for spectacular images, just *look* - this is not about outdoing yourself or others, this is about having fun shooting, and stress relief, not the opposite.
    • Stick with choices and explore opportunities - don't restrict yourself for the sake of restriction, but for the joy of discovering how far you can push things.
    • There's as much fun in switching gear as in holding on to a choice - explore, compare, adjust ... Keep yourself on your toes, but not until it hurts.
    • And, of course: Carry a camera at all times - it's never been easier than nowadays when almost everyone has a sufficiently capable camera in the pants pocket ...
We'll start tomorrow - or at least I will (by just continuing on with what I've been doing for months now); feel free to join me - you're all invited to the party!

No equipment restrictions? I find this the hardest part.
Steve, send me a list, I'll tell you what to ship my way ;)

Seriously, restrict yourself all you want - I usually do the same (M8 with Voigtländer 28mm f/2 - my true EDC). But since we're running this as a rolling challenge, it's not wise to overdo it. Additional, personal goals can be applied at any time. And as I said, I'll run an - additional! - monthly challenge in July, which in all probability will be a "Single in" affair all the way. I have to make up for April ...
