Depends On How the Picture Is Taken

It all depends on how the picture is taken for me, get a picture of me doing something or catch me unawares and it tends to look good.  However, family pictures or any sort of thing where I know its coming (say cheese, etc.) and I feel that I look, well, fake for lack of a better term. 

Then again, it may just be me, everyone tells me I'm photogenic so I guess what looks fake to me must be okay by them.

I feel the exact same way about my voice recording too, it just seems weird, doesn't sound like me at all to my ears.

How do you feel about hearing your own voice in a recording? For me hearing my own voice almost always produces the same awkward feeling as seeing a photograph of myself with a forced smile.<br />

Recently, whenever someone tells me to smile for a photo and will not take a picture otherwise, I will usually give in while muttering "Fake smile" through my teeth.
