Are the pictures the true me, and the mirror just what I want to see? Or are the pictures a less attractive, distorted me, and the mirror closer to reality?

Because when you look in the mirror you know where to stand ... how to position yourself ..yada yada to get the perfect light to look your best.. unless someone else is taking the picture and knows how to take a great photo you just get a mediocre shot. Believe the mirror.

Mirrors are subjective. Pictures objective.

When you look in the mirror you know your flaws and don't look at them, having accepted them.

When you look at a picture you are being objective so you notice the differences.

You also pose for a picture which tends to exaggerate your features but when looking in the mirror you are more relaxed.

Other people, including photographers, don't see this version of you. They see a version that you are rarely privy to, and that can seem wildly foreign to our ingrained sensibilities. As Slate explains, it's a bit like how people hate their own voices on tape, doubly so because we know that those foreign, goofball intonations represent that way that everyone else hears us. In photos, we see ourselves in various states of motion, in different contortions and from uncaring, neutral perspectives. Lenses may distort, sure, but in a powerful way, these uncomfortable photographs are closer to reality than our carefully images in the mirror.
