I Am Camera Shy

i hate people photographing me 362 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.

    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...

    I truly dislike the camera

    and getting my picture taken. I'm trying to work on it, along with my self-esteem and attempting to accept myself externally as much as the confidence I have on the person I am inside. My little experiment the past several months has been to take one selfie each week (or so...

    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...

    would always take selfies ๐Ÿ˜‚ But one day, little did I know was that she was trying to take a picture of me. She called my name out, I looked up, and the next thing I knew was that her phone was aimed right at me ๐Ÿ˜“ I instantly shyed away and covered up my face feeling...

    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...

    I can't stand the sight of myself.

    I have a hard enough time looking into a mirror. Whenever I see a camera pointed at me my first instinct is to hide.
