    Quite

    Both.

    I don't photograph well because I'm so ugly. I always look fat, my hair looks knotty, I smile weird. My head seems huge. I look like I have no make up on, even though I do. My skin look gross. Sometimes I look possesed. Forget that. I am fat. My hair is knotty. I do smile weird...

    Can You Smile Properly?

    I don't like people I don't know well taking photos of me. I get all self concious and think my face looks weird and distorted. I feel all the muscles in my face tensing up and nearly twitching at times. Sometimes I feel so hot like there are a million eyes on me when its just a...

    I hate photos. I like to take them not be in

    them. Partly is cause, no I'm not a photogenic person, but most of it is because I want to remember and immortalize my friends and all of our good times, not how terrible my hair or my smile was in that particular picture.

    But That Is Only When

    Other people take my photograph. If I am doing it myself I know what angles look good on me and what don't. It's not like I always pose for people so they often catch me off guard and I always look terrible. Recently with the weight I've been gaining because of pregnancy my...

    Word

    I always look bad in pictures- fat, big nose, weird smile, squinty eyes. Yuck. I take endless pics of myself and delete almost all of them. The best ones are the ones I post, and I could find a million flaws in those as well.
