Default A question about photography...why do I look weird in photos?

Seriously, why?

I really like the way I look in mirrors but whenever I take pictures of myself I look weird.
My hair looks weird, my face looks different, lighting sucks, my lips are much brighter and all in all I just don't think that I look normal in photos. What's up with that?
I've been told to take many pictures and change rooms in the house and indeed I did found a room where I look close to normal but why can't I look like that in other rooms? What's up with that?

Another thing is my body, my abs and chest to be exact. In pictures I take...non existing. Like I have no abs, like I have **** of an Asian new born...it's just weird.

This is how my abs look on a cell phone..



The quality of the picture is bad I know but that's because it was taken by a cell phone and since I have no bluetooth I had to take a camera and picture it from a cell phone..

But anyway, I hope you get why I'm saying..

Why do I look so much different in photos????

it probably has to do with the colors you're wearing.

I didn't read it, but:

http://www.wikihow.com/Be-Photogenic

maybe that'll help?

you should be like me and lose all hope of ever being good looking. then there's no pressure and nothing to worry about.

I've met a ton of average looking people, but I have come across very few that were ugly. Don't be so hard on yourself. If you have more confidence in yourself, the opposite sex will look at that and forget that you are only average looking. Women love men with confidence, but don't go overboard and be arrogant.

you are looking at yourself in a mirror with dim lighting possibly.


turn on a bright source of flourescent light in your room with the mirror and look at your abs again. not so cut huh?

Well, thanks for that link but can't say it helped me much lol...

Anyway, don't give up on yourself. I like to consider myself good looking and whenever I feel like I' ugly or something I feel absolutley terrible.
Looks are a very important thing in my life, I'd just hate not being satisfied with myself..
Seriously, at this point, I'd have no reason to live if I were feeling ugly or if others considered me ugly.

Anyway, I've seen your pic, GeeWiz. You can improve yourself.

Start going to the gym, you"ll look much better when you improve your body.
Get rid of that haircut, use gel and have a nice hair.
Start dressing better. That is very important.
For example, I really like tight shirts, they make me feel good.
Do you have to wear glasses all the time? Maybe you shouldn't wear them when yo go out..

How tall are you btw? Just start going to the gym, you're skinny and with some effort you can look handsome.

I think everyone can look decent at least, certainly there's natural beauty but no one looks good without some effort.

In fact, check out some celebrity pictures without their make up... They look much better than that but still....you need to invest in your looks.

for men it's straightforward to look good.


just get a six pack (regardless of genes, everyone can get a 6 pack, some just look worse than others) and work out to make the rest of your body big and get a good haircut. then get a good job and make a good amount of money. that's all women really care about.




for women to look good, they gotta have a good face which is pretty much luck and genetics.
