Hi there :D
Ok, so i agree with u. i think picture day sucks. I think it's the camara/photographer. For one thing, the camera makes every1's face look really shiny and bright red. yuck. also, some angles that some of them use is kinda... unnatural(u know what im sayin? "turn sidways, tilt ur head up, get those bangs outa ur face!" blah blah blah). Anyways, in 10th grade, I decided to PRACTICE what smile I would use. Lol, it was the only school photo of me that actually turned out nice. Also, to fix the shiny-ness and redness the camera would make, I ran out of my class and STRAIGHT to my locker. I applied some foundation to get rid of any red, and a bit of powder to erase shine. THen off to pictures! Yup :D
because you're trying to hard, and thinking to much like "what to wear, how should i do my hair, what if i look ugly, i gotta' look my best... etc." and you just stress yourself out, you put to much pressure on yourself. when i try to look good for school i will wake up like 1 hour earlier and then i look so ugly, but when i just get ready in like 10 minutes people think i look so cute, so next time try but not to much to get you stressed you know :P
well from what I have seen, people over think it! As a result, they often have weird expressions they wouldnt normally have! Like my flatmate and her mirror face. She pulls this weird expression every time she looks in the mirror and it looks really creepy, even though she is not creepy looking. Photos always look better if you relax and act like you normally would
Lol have the same problem just be yourself in the photos wear your favorite outfit and accesories so you will be comfortable and take your time doing your hair and makeup that day and bring it along in case you might need a touchup, or if its your smile practice smiling in the mirror and when you find one you like do it like that in your picture :D
i always look so weird in my pictures lol. some ppl just get nervous, some ppl have weird hair styles, some ppl wear the wrong clothes, for some ppl its the dorky smile, in contrast with the ppl who decide not to smile. for me its always one of those except for the non smile thing i always smile lol
its because you are being more critical to what you look like knowing there will be a picture or a hot guy or whatever but when you are less critical to what you look like and how you appear to yourself then you think you look fine when you try
it is fast step of life , and be busy with you working, it is hard to stop for a moment .
I recommend you to have a rest, and look into surroundings carefully. like looking through website and observe beauty.
Because perfection is unattainable. Or, perhaps, because we always *look* for flaws when we have these photos done. I know I used to. xD
maybe because u usually try to look not u...if u stop worrying and be u...it'll come perfect! ^_^
cuz random pictures are always the best taken!!!
