    @MrsFutureG:  are we the same person???

    I hate pictures of myself. I feel like I look in the mirror and see a slightly chunky girl, but I don’t get completely grossed out. However, when I look at pictures all I see are huge fat arms, a giant stomach, double chin, small beady eyes, fat cheeks…the list goes on. So then I’m left wondering “do I look like the person in the mirror or the person in these pictures?” Because it’s a huge difference to me

    Sometimes.  I prefer to be wearing makeup and standing a certain way with my best side (left!) facing the camera.  It drives my Fiance crazy that I am always on his left in photos but it’s my preferred side.  I am not looking forward to photos of the ceremony because my right side will be facing the guests.  Yell

    Usually, but it took a while to get here.

    It’s funny, because I remember always liking/being fine with how I looked in photos as a child, and I can pinpoint exactly when I started getting self-conscious and hating my photos.  It was around the time I hit puberty, I think.  When I was a tween, I started finding flaws in my pics – looking back, they aren’t as bad as I thought.  But as soon as I hit puberty – grade 5 or 6 – I just took a look at my school pics that year and was devastated. I hated everything about how I looked!

    After several years, I’m back to being mostly okay with how I look in pictures. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I usually like my photos, but I have more than a few “Derp-face” pics out there!

    I like them if I am aware they are being taken.  So basically if I am posing/smiling I like them.  If I am in the background or talking or slouching usually I don’t like them.. I mean I know that’s what I look like but standing up straight and smiling can make a HUGE difference in a pic

    I am a photographer. Most of us dislike having our pictures taken!

    However, I lead something of a double life because I’m absolutely fine (and almost always like) the many pictures that get taken of me in my performing group. We’re in really rather awesome costumes, we wear facepaint and we pose! I also loved my wedding photographs because I know and 100% trust my excellent fellow pro photographer.

    I almost always detest “candid” pictures of me taken in “real life mode” though. I like my hair, I like the fact that I’m quite thin but that’s the limit of it. The rest of me is woefully unphotogenic.

    I’d say most of the time. I get finicky as to whether my eyes are open or squinty and if my double-chin is prominent, haha.

    Rarely. I have a pretty slim figure, but my face is round and chubby. I have confidence issues in general, hate having my picture taken and don’t like the way I look in pictures 95% of the time.

    I’m not completely photogenic, but I’m happy with most of the photos I’m in.
