I Hate How I Look In Pictures

Always cringe when seeing photos of yourself? Hate when snapshots are taken? That's what this group is about. 8,543 People

    It's a trial and error process with me.

    I take 1000 pictures of myself and usually about 10 come out decently. I just don't look good in pictures but I look amazing in person, like when I see myself in the mirror I love what I see; I guess that beauty I see just doesn't translate to pictures...maybe that's a good...

    I can't even look at my own profile pictures!

    When I take pictures, I seldom see them again because I can't stand them. Seeing myself in the mirror every day doesn't help either, I suppose. I think it's funny that people always think I photoshop and filter my pictures when it's really due to the flash on my phone! In short...

    I think I'm prettier in person

    than in photos, I'm just not photogenic! It's rare that I take a good photo of myself ):

    I don't like being to told to smile

    for one thing...and then flash photography, makes me look more pissed off! I've always hated my own pictures, even as a kid. There are very few of them, because of all the pictures of me when I was in school, that were on photograph paper, I ripped up to shreds, before I left...

    where I actually look like a human being, and not an animal.

    Right, so because I hate how I look in pictures

    I decided to use a (what I thought was a) clean manga version of me that I found in google. Turns out he's a manga pornstar... Yup, I look like a manga pornstar

    Just sometimes.. I used to not care

    if I looked unflattering, but not anymore. I'm not one of those people that will make the person delete the picture though.

    I look in the mirror

    and I look good, other people think I look good but everytime I take a pic with my phone I look like ****. I even compare it with a normal photo taken by a proper camera and there's no way a phone pic can be any better than a proper camera one.

    Me And Pictures. Just....*cringe*

    Okay so here's the deal. I always look stupid in pictures. It's actually disgraceful. And seeeeeeeeeeeriously embarrassing. Sometimes I end up making faces that i didn't even know were possible to make in the first place. I don't have one single picture of myself that I actually...

    Sometimes you think you look pleasantly alright

    when you look into the camera facing you. But then when you snap the photo and it flips itself into its mirror image a troll emerges from your screen

    I'm My Own Worst Critic

    People keep asking for pictures

    and when I say no (because I barely know them) they say I am a fake! I am NOT a fake, I am just uncomfortable with sharing pictures of myself without knowing a single thing about the other person.

    Sometimes It's Not About Me

    This happened years ago when my daughter was 9. I remember because my EX and I had just separated.  We were standing in front of my house and I was asking my daughter to pose for a few pictures.  She obliged.  With a sad look on her face, she tells me "Mom, I know how much...

    I Hate How I Look In Pictures

    When I was 19 I got hit by a car.  I got a Traumatic Brain Injury and damaged a lot of nerves.  Some of these nerves went to half my face- so half my face is drooping. I guess you probably wouldnt see it unless you knew me before the accident.  Its very obvious to me. I "lost...

    How to (finally) Look Good In Pictures

    I'm not a bad looking guy, somewhere between Brad Pitt and the fat Alec Baldwin, skewing just slightly to the latter, I assure you. But if you've ever seen a *photo* of me, you might conclude the range is somewhere between great ape and Danny Devito. So after decades of dodging...

    I hate how I look in pictures.

    What I do is I buy foundation and apply that on my face and fix my hair. Nobody seeing me look like mess.

    My friend just took my senior photos

    Ohhh my god my pictures come out horrible.

    Where do I start!! It's either my left or right eye that is not cooperating for the picture. Or sometimes one check has more makeup than the other. I swear there has to be something completely wrong with me or my phone doesn't like me!
