    Some say, that when a person does not smile in a photo, that they are smiling inside. Do you smile in photos? And, what do you think?

      I always smile in all my photos (unless it's a stolen shot) I smile in photos for many reasons...I smile and think, "...look I am great" ...well not very conceited, just a!

      I smile but I don't show my teeth, Not because I'm in urgent need of dentistry, but because I have one front tooth larger than the other and I'm very conscious of it. Although people tell me it isnt noticeable.

    Smiling in photo makes the photo more beautiful and attractive as smiling makes attractive naturally.It is very odd if you don't smile in a photo.Some feels shy to smile, others only takes photo with a smile.

    I wanted to smile when I took my last passport photo but I could not because my previous photos got rejected because I smiled and my mouth opened about a millimetre.

    I try to smile, but it always looks forced and fake. I think the best a thing a photographer can do, is tell a good joke before they take the photo, hopefully that can guarantee a genuine smile.

    No, I tend to look very Victorian in photos.

      Victorian, I'd have thought more Edwardian?

        No, it has taken me a lot of hard work to move into the 19th century, so the 20th is perhaps rushing it a little.

    I always smile in person, so it comes naturally for me to smile in photos.
