I'm prettier in person, but I don't look bad in the pics as well :)

I think I look bad in both :p

Why do people here think that they're ugly? I mean tastes are different and maybe i consider someone here not that good looking, but it seems that people seem think think they are worse then they are. :confused:

Lol neither, but has anybody noticed in the bathroom mirror you can look pretty damn good, but the second you see yourself in a mirror anywhere else you look absolutely terrible?

Happens to me too much :p

Better to be 'down on yourself' than up your own ass. No one likes a narcissist ;)

But seriously, I'm pig-ugly. I could go double-dating with the Elephant Man and he'd be the 'looker'.

I guess we all just look at our faces which probably look better than the rest of us :p

Narcissism FTW!

No, you don't have to be a narcissist just to be aware of your looks. If someone goes around saying "look at me! I'm SOOOO HOT", then yeah, they need to shut up. But if you're comfortable with yourself, there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

OMG, that happens to me ALL THE TIME :eek: :vlol: But seriously - I look at myself in the bathroom mirror a say to myself "hmm, not bad, I can go outside like that" and then I see myself in some mirror outside and am terrified :yik: I don't get it :vlol:

I generally look better when I'm fitter, so I look good in photos taking when I was fitter. I think the same goes for everyone, heh.

Eddie Haskell
30-01-10, 15:13
Prettier? I don't know if I was ever described in such a fashion, but my wife tells me I look best when I'm sleeping. And perhaps, my image on a picture when I'm sleeping... ;)

On a side note, I always found it funny and interesting when people gather round to watch slides or look at old pics of themselves. The women invariably shudder and shake their heads at their old selves, dissatisfied or embarrassed by their clothes, their hair, their makeup or something else. The men don't take much notice either way, or else they say stuff like "man, I wish I still had that shirt", or "that was a great year".

Used to be really photogenic, now not so much! I am going through them ugly teenage years, so that may be the cause of it! Anyways, I pick neither at the moment! I come out horrible in photos, looking like I'm drunk, and while I look better in person, I'm still in no way good looking!

30-01-10, 15:30
I think everyone looks prettier in person, except those cases where the photos are shopped until the subjects become gods and goddesses. :p

I like how I look much better in person than my photos. I've had people tell me I look prettier in person, too.

Though I can be very photogenic sometimes. Then again, other times I don't feel photogenic at all. :vlol: Depends on my mood, I guess.

I'm much better in person.

To be honest, it's rare for someone to take a bunch of pictures and like them all. No matter how photogenic one may be. I took a photography class before, and they emphasized taking as many pictures of the subject as possible. Even landscapes. You have to get the picture in the perfect moment, lighting, and place for it to look right, even if you're simply taking a picture of a flower. Models also have a bazillion pictures taken and only one or two may even be used. It's normal. :)

Aranara
30-01-10, 20:02

This. Almost everyone I know looks much better in person than in pictures, there are very rare exceptions. Try watching a video of a beautiful person (Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox, Keira Knightley, whoever), and try pausing the video at random times. It's amazing how unflattering they can look at certain spots, yet when you see them in motion, they look gorgeous.

jackles
30-01-10, 20:11
I HOPE I look better in real life as I have seen some really gopping pictures of me!


Though now I look back at pics of the 'younger' me I am gutted that I wasn't that bad in my youth and couldn't see it at all then.

Few months ago I was thinking to post pic of myself on Tomb Raider Forum Member Pictures. When I looking my self in a mirror I say to myself "Damn I look hot" when I take a photo "Damn I look awful" when I make a funny face and take photo "Damn I look better than last time" or even when I move one single hair "OK that it, I will let the members use their imagination".

So you can say that I look better in person.

You can look different in the mirror then you really do. I remember a scene with Shannon Doherty in Charmed, she was looking at the mirror and her reflection was really ugly. But she's pretty like this. And it can be other way around :p

Photographs are way more unreliable than looking in a normal mirror. I don't know how anyone can dispute this.

I get the feeling you're only saying this because of what I said earlier about thinking I look better in the mirror. I haven't got a victim complex or anything but you do seem to enjoy having digs at me.

Umm, no? In photographs you see as other's see you and the mirror is a twisted image.It's only a twisted image if the mirror itself is twisted. Also, in photographs the pictures can often be blurry or overly dark/light. This isn't how other people see you.

It's true, my science teacher A LONG time ago was talking to us about how you see yourself as normal in the mirror, but if somebody else looked at you in the mirror they'd see a practically different person. Put a mark on your face, then look in the mirror, it'll appear on the opposite side.

I look better on pictures when the lighting is proper and there are no weird shadows on my face, lol. One of the reasons why I hate being on webcam when someone else wants to see me when Mitch is on it.

I don't think I'm that photogenic tbh. I do sometimes manage to get decent pictures taken though.

I can't really answer the question. It's all up to the perception of others. :)
It's not important how others see you :)

Im going to go ahead and say neither, photo's always look terrible and I wouldn't say I was much of a looker.

This question is best answered by some other than ourself. In some pics I may look better than in my everyday life (as in special occassion pics I have better make-up hair and clothes) and vice versa. I have been told that I'm photogenic and I do believe that I'm not as good looking as some pics show. Fortunately my boyfriend bids to disagree! :D

I guess I look decent-ish in real life, but I'm not photogenic at all.
If the camera is of good quality I might manage to look okay (as long as it's not shoved too close to my face and there is good lighting). But I look really ugly and downright scary in pics taken by webcams or phone cameras: my face looks puffy, my lips swollen and I have epic dark circles.

Oh, I didn't realise cameras today were fitted with an ugly filter...

Er- you guys do know that what you look like on pictures is what you look like in RL, right? You look the same in both, you just werent looking in the mirror, all poserlike and prepared when someone snapped a candid of you :p

^ I don't believe you. I demand a picture! :vlol: No really, I think you should post a picture of yourself. :) :hug:


For me - I think I look better in person. But I am not so sure about that. :o

Hahaha, for you I will:D, someday :pi:, if I may say you look better either way, well I didn't see you in person, though.:p

id say in person, but pictures usually turn out well too.
i guess i have to say both. I think it's kinda one of the requirements for being a model. (runway & Pictures)

I think I look prettier in pics than I do in real life...

When I posted the first picture of me, I got like tons of comments such as "Handsome" "hottest guy ever" or "you sir are really hot", I suddenly got plenty of attention... Which was very unexpected because at school, in class or even when I walk in the street, people hardly notice me, It's like if I was invisible to people.

I can count on one single hand the people that really looked at me for whatever reason.

So I guess that I'm better in pics.

I strongly disagree :p There are photos of me that if i held it infront of me and then looked in the mirror and compared, they look NOTHING like me. I don't know what it is, but its just not me, in an unflattering angle it can make me look like 20x heavier too XD Obviously there are some that do look like me and they're the ones i'll use for things but otherwise at the wrong angle..photos, are meh

It depends...sometimes I think I look awful in real life and in pics and sometimes I think I look amazing in both.

I'm neutral on the subject.

I think I look bad in both :p

same here :(

Depends =/

Sometimes awful in pictures and in real life.
And some days it's the complete opposite, but I'm going to say pictures. Because I tend to get comments on here and noticed more then I do out in public. People barely notice when i attempt to make an effort :p

I've NEVER been photogenic, so I'd have to say I'm better in person. But even that's saying something.

I have gotten looks from some girl/ladies... That would make me think I was good looking, but I've taken pictures of myself where I thought... "Ack :-P" Then again, I've had someone tell me (that seen a picture of me) "I'm willing to bet that women must drop dead right in front of you." :o

And... *eh* one "male" from australia that used to be registered here seen a pic of me and said I was "hot". I took offense to it... But I got over it, then took it for what it was - a compliment.

I'm not pretty at all. Nor handsome, or good looking, etc. No matter how you package me, I just am not a box of chocolates.

Though it's not saying much, I do look better in the bathroom mirror than in photos or video. Actually it's saying a lot because I scarcely recognize myself on video. I suspect that's because when I'm using the mirror to shave and comb my hair in the mornings, I am subconsciously adjusting and tweaking my pose, angle, facial expression, etc. in real time until I find the absolute least hideous -- one in a million -- view of myself. Once that snapshot is in my brain I can give myself the customary "well, it's not as bad as it could be" before I head out the door.

Of course the moment I leave the mirror all that micro-adjustment stops and I revert back to the full fury of my naturally unappealing form and visage. To be honest, I don't mind. It sounds terrible but, I am at a place in my life where scaring the crap out of people is far more useful to me than being something pleasant for them to look at (not that I've ever been pleasant to look at). It's actually kind of neat -- even guard dogs avert their gaze when I look them in the eye. It's both a comfort and an asset to have people clear me a path and leave me alone.

As far as how I look to others, since I can't step outside of myself and see what I look like I can't really say, but people making a point to stay out of my way and having guard dogs shy away from me when I look at them is a pretty good indicator that I'm not what someone would call "easy on the eyes."

Though now I look back at pics of the 'younger' me I am gutted that I wasn't that bad in my youth and couldn't see it at all then.

Same here. Though he was my best friend in the whole world, my father simply didn't comprehend the concept of tact and called things as he saw them. He was a man of complete honesty and wouldn't have told a lie to save his own life. As a result, it was indicated to me numerous times that I wasn't exactly a looker, though he didn't consider himself one either. Because of that and a lot of other incidents, I grew up thinking I was absolutely ugly. I look at the pictures from fifteen years ago when I was a teenager and in comparison to what I look like now that life has had some time to tear me down, my appearance wasn't nearly as awful as I thought.

I hate the majority of my photos as I think I look nothing like that in real life! Not that I consider myself attractive in real life, but I'm less ugly than I am in pictures! :o

You are so not ugly my darling. You will just say i am bias, but its the truth. :) :hug: in pictures or reality you are gorgeous
