I Am Camera Shy

i hate people photographing me 206 People

    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.

    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...

    These cameras cause more accidents then they do help. They are nothing more than a new tax on the citizenry. If you must have them, please use longer yellow light times.

    Most of the time. I have to know you really well to not be shy and/or awkward around you and sometimes even that doesn't work.
