    i look much better in real life than i do in pictures and i hate it with a passion. Especially when you see someone take 50 pictures in like 10 minutes and add all of them onto their tumblr and they come out looking amazing

    Mine Get Funny

    Seriously, my eyes shut on their own on the click before a flash goes off, and even when the button is pushed. I'm not photogenic, so I've maybe had two good pictures so far this year. In both, I'm looking away from the camera.

    No matter what I do, I just don't look good in pictures. I hate how I look. My husband and kids say I look good, but I just don't see what they see.

    I don't know what it is?

    ? I'm insecure about what I look like but I mean I feel like I look decent in a mirror but when I take a selfie for snapchat I just think I look horrid?

    I can't stand taking pictures of myself. I don't even take pictures with other people. I just ALWAYS look bad in pictures, so I've stopped taking them. I envy those who look good every time they take a picture of themselves. I hate cameras more than anything in the world, and I...

    Beauty and the Beast

    Imagine, all that in one person! It's true. Sometimes all the camera sees is the unattractive parts of me, othertimes it only shows the good. I've always said I was balanced, it just took me a long time to realize it happens on all levels with me.

    Bad/big Features

    Ugh.. I feel like most lighting/cameras bring out my worst features and exaggerates them, and I look really severe or angry-looking... I look in mirrors and it doesn't look like that, it seems.

    I Guess I Look Stoned ....

    Most of the pics I see of myself, I look stoned, or just 'not there'. haha ... probably because most of the time  I didn't WANT to be there!! .... No -- I don't like pics of myself ...

    I don't like taking pictures of myself. Sometimes i think they look good at the time but later will end up hating it. I only got one picture of myself on Facebook and you can barely see me in it. I just can't bear to look at a picture of myself because i either look like a...

    I look bad in my mom's photos.

    .. So do other people and they have complained... idk if she just has bad eyesight or if she is just secretly spiteful or if she has genuinely bad taste... I myself am an expert (imo) of taking more flattering photos and shots of things... I have an eye for beauty (imo) and I...

    And it's not just my opinion, either! I've gotten used to people looking at my photos and saying in a puzzled tone "who is that? that doesn't look like you!" It's a mystery. I'm always shocked by how wan and thin I look in photos, when it doesn't seem visible ...

    I'm Not The One People Who

    can take a picture and always look great. I can almost never have a picture taken of me and it looks good. When i'm taking them myself, I always have to do "practice poses/smiles" before i actually take 'em. Lol.

    I truly believe that. I look about 16/17, my hair always looks lank and darker then it actually is, my nose looks massive and I have a weird smile. I also have a childlike body and look flatchested. I don't think it helped that when I was growing up, everyone always used to say...
