    Not Photogenic

     I look weird in most pictures. I think I usually turn out fat or my face is too wide and chubby or I have an ugly expression. The only time that I would feel comfortable is when I take the pics myself because I know how to angle the camera and have a certain pose or...

    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.

    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.

    Always...

    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...

    Un-photogenic

    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.

    Hate Pics of Myself

    I'm usually the one taking pictures of everyone so I don't have tons of pics of myself. The ones I do get, I always look like I have no neck because my chin hangs down so much. One of my worst fears when I was a kid was to grow up and have a double chin. I didn't end up with a...

    Disgusting.....

    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...

    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.

    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 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...
