    I've never liked my picture taken.

    I think I'm ugly even though everyone says I'm not. I just don't like the way I look in pictures.

    My family takes photos of me

    and I hate it. I have acne,I am overweight and I don't dress up. I always wear T-shirts and sweatpants. I always slouch and that is why I have round back. My hair is always in a bun. My aunt always says you look like a old lady. Everything that you read I feel disgusting about...

    I cannot stand when people take pictures of me

    when my hair not done. It bothers me when I see the picture. I also can't stand when people take pictures of me without me knowing. I would find out days later or the next day.

    For whatever reason I hate being on camera.

    Seeing my reflection is nearly as annoying. I just don't like pictures, or videos, or art that has anything to do with me. I can do representational self portraits but sitting still and staring at a mirror is something I do only for a grade. For those of you who repeatedly ask...

    Well... I don't actually hate it

    but it does irritate me. Worst of all was my employer: photographs were randomly taken during meetings and conferences without checking if it was okay to do so and I was reprimanded for looking away when a camera was pointed at me. The organisation proudly stated it was...

    OHHHH MY GOSH I HATE IT.

    people always think I'm being rude when I refuse to get in a picture but I'm not trying to be. not at all, I just cannot stand seeing myself in pictures. I hate my face quite a bit so seeing it in a picture is just.. it physically hurts me. but I'm not about to go telling them...
