Do you think you look good in photos?

    I make a terrible model.  I always look so weird in pictures.  My sister can make me look like I feel I really look.  Why does it take an expert to make me look decent.  Does anyone else feel this way?

      Stop that right now! You are the most beautiful girl that has ever lived in your body. Seriously, you're a nice looking girl from a mans point of view. The better you feel about yourself, the better you will project.

        You are right.  I sound like I am fishing for compliments.  I tend to complain alot. It's not one of my better qualities.  You are a very nice person to be supportive through.  You and my husband.

    I agree with BC, you look great.  Why would you want to be like a model, they're so fake.  Be yourself and you'll always be happy.

    I'm not the greatest but I don't care to be either.  There's a newer pic of my on my new Charleston hub.  Check it out and see how much I care...lol

    I require lots of good lighting to be photogenic.

    Personally, I'd rather look better in person then in photographs!!!

      Most people do look better in person.  Models look less impressive in person.  I would just like to look the same.  My sister is a great photographer.  She can make anyone look great.

    I like goofy photos of myself.  Photos involving funny faces, especially.  They look more like me.

      Thanks BadCo.  I could do with a new profile picture.  Perhaps one will arise from this weekend's upcoming visit to Austin.

        So envious of you Americans, I would love to tour America, enjoy Austin and just leave the pic you have, its a happy pic, i like it !

          I do enjoy Austin, but I live in Houston... Quite the difference.  Also, I am not worried about the picture, so much at my appearance.  I am the typical American in that way.  People kill themselves for being fat... It is really a great and yet juvenile place.

    I had to purchase new glasses before this pic. My last eyeglasses made me look like the aging Harry Potter... smile

    Not at all.  My oversized nose casts a shadow no matter what direction I'm facing.  My good side is whatever side is not facing the camera.

    I think you look great.  I, on the other hand, need an avatar. smile

    Occasionally I find a pic that I think I look alright in, and I stick it on my avatar/display pic/whatever site im on ... but then I see it too much and start noticing all the imperfections. The trick is to get hundreds of photos of yourself taken, that way the chances are you'll get at least one good one!

    I'm usually the one behind the camera at my house, so not many pics of me to choose from. I look pretty good on a plastic horse, though!

    I've always hated photos of myself.

    Just had a really strange experience where my daughter discovered a portrait in a museum in France of a gorgeous young woman that she thinks looks like me. She said it kind of freaked her out, and that even one of her fellow students asked if it was me. If any of you are my facebook friends, you can find it in my photos - she actually tagged it as me :-)

    I was just thinking before I saw this thread that the subject has hub potential.

    I could improve on photos. I don't know how to pose etc, I could smile in pic yes. I look better in person, they all say, 

    You are beautiful though!
