    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...

    Quite

    Recently, I've been thinking about this a lot. I'll look at myself in the mirror and sometimes really like the way I look (though not always), but every picture I see is awful. I hate them all. They all make me feel so bad about how I look.

    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.

    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.

    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 couldn't resist taking this pic on my cellphone... with only 5% battery left. I may have missed some calls but it was well worth it.

    My dream is to be a photographer but I fear I have a very long way to go. I don't mind, as long as I get there some day but of course I would hope it be sooner than later.

    Perspective photography is my 2nd favorite creative activity / artform, after making music. Some pictures, like instrumental songs, are worth far more than a thousand words. :3

    Both of my half - sisters are very pretty. I am the weird ugly duckling of the family. In some ways this is bad and in other ways it's okay to be different and strange.
