Your face in photos

Ugly, both ways.

Worse, usually. Every once in awhile there’s a good photo and I treasure it like a rare pearl.

My face looks ten pounds fatter. I have unremarkable looking friends who look like models in pictures. I guess its the planes of your face.

I'm glad I'm not dating today. I'm a decent looking guy in person and in videos, and am approachable. BUT I look like a honeydew in photos, and ain't no way anyone would even say hello on an app based on pics.

A lot of people look pudgy in pics. I think you need a slightly harsh, rangy face to look good. A lot of models have that extreme look in person.

I think I look pretty decent in person but I tend to look like an angry lesbian in pics (I'm a guy, by the way).

I hate pictures of myself. In some I look fantastic,in most I look like Quasimodo. Yet most of my life I was told how attractive I was . Go figure.

It's not that I look better or worse, but that I look completely different in a picture than I do in the mirror.

What R8 said. I just don't usually look like myself. My father could always take a good picture of me, because he had an eye for photography. One of my partner's aunts also took decent pictures.

My face looks fatter, older. My skin looks pale and ugly. I hate myself

I stopped taking pictures of myself years ago; I don't need to see that.

It's weird because, as mentioned above, I looked like I have a fat face syndrome in photos, even though I'm in great shape , until this virus I worked out at the gym 5-6 times a week
But I get told I'm "good looking" a lot in person and when I had photos up on SCRUFF, I had almost 100 different WOOFS and messages from guys wanting to hook up with me and I only had an account there for three months
It's very weird...

I dunno - some tell me I'm good looking but I don;'t see it.

R15 also camera phone pictures alter your face
|by Anonymous||reply 16||Last Thursday at 1:57 PM|
I have no idea what happens when a camera is turned on my face. I can look in the mirror, then snap a photo and my face/neck look horribly fat and I feel I look 10-15 years older. I receive frequent compliments on my skin, so am not sure what the camera does to my face. Note - frequent compliments on my skin does not equal me saying I look 20 years younger than my age, which is a DL thing in certain corners.

Here’s Why You Look Good in the Mirror But Bad in Photos
|by Anonymous||reply 18||Last Thursday at 2:14 PM|
That doesn’t explain the fatter face and the worse skin in pictures. I think it also may be the iPhone.

Yes, everyone thinks they look better in the mirror than when they see a picture of themself.

My eyes also tend to go from 0 to Crazytown the second a camera is pointed at it.

I just took two recent photos of me and flipped them, as per R18 and I definitely look more like "myself" in the photos.

People generally find me attractive, but I feel like I look horrid in photos.

I am extremely unphotogenic
|by Anonymous||reply 26||Last Thursday at 3:02 PM|
Isn't there a good photo app for the iPhone that can flatten the face? I heard that helps to get a more realistic look. If there is one, I haven't been able to find it.

Worse. My nose always looks bigger.

Try a ring light, guys. Make sure the light adjusts from bluish to yellowish. Adjust the light closer to yellow. You'll look a lot better.

If you make an error and have your phone camera on showing your neck and chin it’s devastating.

LOL - r18's article is pretty true.
I just tried flipping a picture of myself and it now looks exactly like I look in the mirror - it makes a HUGE difference.
|by Anonymous||reply 33||Last Thursday at 7:56 PM|
Not for me, r33. My face is fairly symmetrical, so it doesn't make my pics any better lol. I look alright in person, but the camera hates me.
|by Anonymous||reply 34||Last Thursday at 8:10 PM|
I look awful and I'm not a bad looking person. I have a friend who has moles on his face (ala Robert Redford) but he looks great in photos! Why the fuck are some people so photogenic? The only satisfaction (and I admit this is cheap) is that when people meet him they must be shocked at his moles.

I get a lot of attention in person, in photos I look awful. Getting a good photo is a huge chore, but possible.

My face has been ugly since I was 11. I can't even stand to look in the mirror, and I run anytime someone pulls out a camera (or obviously points their smartphone towards me). Perhaps 1% of the time, I get a good photo by a fluke. So, if I need a selfie photo of myself, I'll take about 50 pics, and select the one that offends me the least. The last time I went to the DMV, the photographer took my picture, and then she looked at the resulting image on her monitor. She shook her head and said, "Let's try to take another photo." She shot my photo again, and the result wasn't any better. She gave up, and decided to go with the second photo.

R38, I hope that you will start to appreciate your face at some point. I know it sounds corny, but ten years from now, you'll realize how beautiful (or not-bad looking) you were. Nice of the DMV lady to take a 2nd picture.

I look awful in photographs so now I just use a scanner.

I have maybe 10-12 photos of myself as an adult that I look nice in. The vast majority are kind of frightening. And the Zoom shit is the bargain basement level of blobby blotchy unsightliness.

I look moon faced in pictures. I am so unphotogenic I generally run when I see cameras come out.

I take better unposed, candid photos though. It's weird.

Stick your head out when your picture is being taken and zoom in on your face when taking a selfie. Hello! Muva Tyra Banks told us this years ago
