So following on from this thread: Photo Theme of the Month

Starting March 1st - We will do a theme of the month.
The theme will cover the course of the month, however it will be broken up in to 4 sub-themes, that will link/follow on from the main theme. I'll break it in to dates. You don't have to post every week. You don't even have to post at all! But if you want to, have fun with it!

In the mean time though - I thought we could have a starter theme... sort of an introduction of sorts to who is participating/wanting to participate. This will go until the 1st of March when the themes will start properly.


Our starter theme is: SELF PORTRAIT.
- Introduce yourself
- Tell us what camera you have
- Tell us two interesting facts about you!
- For those with a DSLR, let us know the settings you used for your image

Now... I wanna see how inventive you can be with this... lets see if we can go beyond the whole myspace, duck lip thing. If you need inspiration, google photographic self portrait or something like that!

My name is Teresa. I've been on Bloop since... 2004? But I've had *this* diary since May 21st, 2005 (don't ask me why I remember that). I have a Canon EOS 500D. Uhhh, interesting facts... 1. I'm left-handed. 2. I HAVE to eat breakfast. Every day. I always wake up hungry, and it's my favourite meal of the day.

shutter speed: 1/15 | aperture: f/1.4 | ISO: 1600 | focal length: 50mm
(I chose this photo because it has me with my trusty camera xD)

I guess I'll start then...

I am Pam aka Miss Ice Fingers. I've been on Bloop forever but I'm kind of shy so not too many people know me, at least I don't think they do :P I have a Nikon D90 but I am currently trying to come up with way to justify upgrading to a Nikon D7000. So far I have been unsuccessful but I really, really, really want one.

These facts aren't particularly interesting, I just stole them from an entry I wrote last year which called for interesting facts:

1. Before I had bloop, I had a diary on TOD, even though I wasn't a teen. I have known 20 of the 30 people on my FO list since the TOD days.

2. I am an expert on 80s sitcoms. I don't know why. Obviously I just spent way too much time in front of the TV in the 80s and it would be my luck that my one area of expertise would be in something completely useless.

Here is my photo, I think this counts as a self portrait, kind of. At least, I took it and I'm in it (a bit). Excuse the spider webs on the mirror. I only intended it as a practice shot for my class & I haven't taken the final version yet.

My Name is Kerri, I'm currently trying to switch over to my new diary (I'm just taking my dear sweet-ass time about it) - but some people know me as Kerri♥blue.
I have no idea when I started on bloop, a rough estimation would be when I was 15 - so back in 2002?
I use to do photography back in highschool - but even then I was really bad with figuring out shutter speeds and all the rest of that stuff. I just bought my DSLR, which is tricky for me because all my knowledge flew out the door a long time ago, so I'm re-learning everything.

Two Facts:
1. I was born in South Africa
2. I have 3 scars

My camera is a Nikon D5000

Honestly, I was just messing about with my camera in my room, I turned off the auto-focus and tried my own handy work (honestly, didn't know I could manually do it with my lense, what a surprise) I was also practising with my trip-pod and figuring out the fish-lense option but I was getting frustrated and really wanted to post my introduction. So I just snapped this and decided it will do. I might also use my iphone and olympus cameras to take photos for some challenge - it will just come down to a matter of convenience.

Ok, I was meant to do this last week! Woops, went and had a baby instead!
Not the kinda pic I was aiming for, but hey! You do what you have to do!

I use a Nikon D60. However I just gave you an iphone pic because I'm cool like that :P

Random facts -
1. I have 4 tattoos
2. I got my first camera when I was 12. It was a funk yellow thing. I thought it was the best thing EVER.

And now I am going to go and do the March challenge!

I'm totally doing this backwards. haha I'll take an updated photo of myself soon.. I haven't been feeling well so I haven't been in the mood for self portraits.

Anyway, I'm Nicki. I've been on Bloop since '06. I live in the sunniest, most beautiful place in British Columbia, yet my home is a dark basement suite and I work in a dark mall. When it's warm, I spend a ton of time outside soaking up the sun and taking nature photos. I loooove colourful, high contrast photos. I use a Sony a230 DSLR, which is currently fitted with a 30mm macro lens. I'm not well versed in camera operation, so I'm still learning. Pointers are always welcome.
