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. 9,649 People

    I look better in person.

    I'm not a fan of getting any picture of myself done because I look weird in them. I have moments where I look at myself in the mirror thinking "damn, I'm looking hella fine." And then I go and take a picture and it isn't exactly how I saw it. Grrr you evil cameras..

    I take 50 million pictures

    and end up deleting all of them except one. I just stare at it and suddenly I look like flipping Godzilla! Then I delete that one also. That is why I don't take pictures.

    I maybe have less than 10 OK pics of myself.

    Seriously I know that I look good but on a picture, when I smile, my right eye is smaller than left one. I just hate my eyes on a photo.

    I've been told I'm very photogenic

    but I don't think so! I think I look terrible so every time I take a pic I go for the half face at a diagonal angle!

    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.

    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.

    It reminds me how fat I am.

    I get depressed seeing how big I am. I can't do anything about it, gyms want you to be 18+

    Stop asking for pictures.

    I'm not going to post or send any pictures of myself. I can describe myself to you but that's it. Thank you in advance.

    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...

    Okay, so why do we look different in pictures

    than what we do In the mirror? I honestly think I look really pretty in the mirror, but anytime I try to take a picture then everything comes out all different? So I began thinking. When I'm with friends, and we all look in the mirror Together, they look like the same people...

    Holy **** I just did it.

    I just changed my profile picture to me and I'm dedicated to not changing it. I gotta get better about my self esteem and this may help. It's acceptance of what I look like

    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...

    Oh, my gosh it just ****** me off how I look in

    pictures. Like my whole family is photogenic and then I'm just their looking like a troll. On my last family picture I almost wasn't visible. Because I felt like if I showed my whole face I might ruin the picture.

    Pictures are easy to take.

    But I forced myself to keep one as a profile pic. I don't really like pictures in general and I don't really like my profile pic either.....idk

    I literally had a picture taken of me by a

    friend at school and when he posted it...I swear I cried. I don't look fat to myself when I look in the mirror and people tell me I am not fat...but those pictures of me... I feel like a freaking whale now.
