    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'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'm My Own Worst Critic

    I hate having my picture taken because as soon as I see the photo, I can immediately find at least five things wrong with the way I look. This is so frustrating because I think that pictures are a great way to capture memories but seeing a photo of myself makes me very self...

    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...

    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 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 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...

    where I can't even take a "selfie" anymore. I'll wholeheartedly believe that I look good in the mirror, and then find that none of the fifty selfies I tried to take look good (including the next fifty I'll try to take until my hand starts to hurt). Sometimes I feel upset about...

    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

    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...

    It is so easy to get hung up on a particular of
