I Am Camera Shy

i hate people photographing me 308 People

    You'd Never Believe It Looking At My Albums

    I really am camera shy. I could count the pictures of me that I really like on the thumbs of both hands. That's maybe/maybe not an exaggeration. But I really don't like posing for pictures. If attendance is not requires I will try to avoid the camera. I just figured how I can get...

    It's ruining my life!

    I dread social events as there is always someone trying to poke a camera in my face. I like how I look in the mirror but hate how I look in pictures. When people know you hate having your photo taken it seems they need to make a big deal out of it and the whole thing is just...

    Not Certain Why

    For some reason I'm not sure of, I've never liked having my picture taken. It's not that I'm ugly (I get told often that I'm attractive), or that I have horrid self esteem, I just don't like taking pictures that involve me being in them.

    Video Camera

    I don't mind taking pictures with the photography camera; but I don't like being on video camera. I don't like hearing my voice on the video camera; and I don't always look good on video camera.

    I don't know why, though.

    I'm actually very photogenic.

    No Pictures Please

    I am sure my being camera shy has something to do with body image but more than that I believe it stems from a strong dislike of being the center of attention. I really don't like being the focus of any group; I'd much rather be part of the crew than the star of the show. And...
