    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

    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...

    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...

    All of my friends and family look good in

    pictures, but I always end up looking obese. I prefer to take my own pictures cause I can see what angle I don't look like a cow at.

    My friend just took my senior photos

    for me and didn't edit them at all. She has more acne than me and her skin looks flawless in her pictures, and she posted them on her page so hundreds of people are gonna see them :/ Sorry, I just needed to vent somewhere

    I Disallow Pictures

    I was in a tree-climbing accident as a five-year-old. I lost balance while climbing and slid down the tree in a great speed. There was a nail in the tree, and it tore my right cheek and lower eyelid. It's a miracle it didn't leave me blind in one eye. The doctors didn't want to...

    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...

    I loved the camera when I was really young.

    Now it's the enemy. I hate how a camera can capture every single flaw. I hate how I look in pictures.

    I mostly manage to look bad in pictures.

    My eyes especially. Lately the dark circles I have caused by working too much and not resting enough make me look like a zombie in the last pictures were taken about a month a month ago. I need new photos!

    When I look at a picture of myself it never ends well. I end up crying in tears and then feel depressed for the rest of the day. It's horrible. I don't mind mirrors sometimes I don't like my reflection but other times I really like what I see. It has to be a specific mirror in...

    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...

    The camera is not my best friend.

    I look way better in person. 😐 I don't understand, shouldn't it be vice versa? I believe the camera shows more flaws over your actual appearance. I've even been told I look better in person. What a damper on my day. My life.
