When I see pictures of me tagged on Facebook, club websites, and so on, I always cringe and think how hideous I look. Even in pictures when I haven't been drinking I think this.
I wouldn't say I am ugly, probably just average, but I think I look ugly in photos I see.
Is this a normal, lack of self-esteem thing to think all of your pictures are ugly?
You're probably just not photogenic ?
If you're ugly then,,,, yes
Ah, i always think i look worse in photos than what i do in real life. I always blame it on the angles, or the flash of the camera though!
I mean NO offense when I say this, but you probably are one of those people who doesn't make an effort with their appearance. I've noticed a trend along these lines, especially with men.
Obviously, 'bad' angles do exist (I've had some terrible photos taken...), but generally, if you look good and groom yourself well, you will look good in photos. Furthermore, some people are more photogenic than others.
Some people aren't good at having their photo taken and a lot of people aren't good at taking photos in the first place (seriously, rule of thirds. Look it up). Practice in the mirror. Look the camera in the lens and try not to overdo it. And if all else fails, de-tag. Sure it's cheating, but life is like that sometimes.
Yeah, it's normal to be critical. In photos especially, there's so much that can go wrong. Bad lighting, funny angle, caught at the wrong moment, etc.
yeah, i hate having pictures taken or being on video,
I hate almost every photo of me ever taken, though in real life I think I can look pretty good. Maybe there are secrets to being photogenic we just haven't mastered?
