this isnt supposed to be avain or narcissistic question, i just wanna know if people know or aware that they are photogenic or is it just the other people who are looking at others' photos who can say that a certain person is photogenic. for me, im a bit photogenic. not reallly photogenic, but a bit. :) the fact that i know how to smile and not close my eyes during picture taking times makes me qualified to be photogenic, right? :)

i think i am photogenic depending on what angle the camera shot is. if the angle is facing front and won't focus so much on my face, i find it beautiful but when it is on a side view angle, i don't appreciate it. there are times also when i look photogenic because of the view and the color of my dress. the color complements my aura for the shot... so i'd say i'm also a bit of photogenic.

im not sure haha.. take a look at my avatar...am i photogenic?? hehe.. anywayz i think that there are days i look good in pictures but sometimes i look awful.. i think it also depende on your mood while taking the picture.. and it's usually the eyes that changes how you look too.. like when you cried the night before your eyes would look puffy in the picture and that's not photogenic.. try taking a picture when you're in love and whoa..you'll look as stunning as ever

I wouldn't say I am particularly photogenic. That doesn't mean I have nevber seen a nice picture of myself. It means I have to take ten pictures to get one decent one.

I don't think I'm very photogenic. Every now and then I'll come across of picture of myself I actually like. But most of the time when I look at pictures of myself I can't help but think "What the heck was I doing there?".

hehe, you're funny. it seems that you've got a lot of stolen shots huh? wherein you forget that your picture was taken at that moment. :)

I dont think I am a photogenic one, because everytime I look at my picture, I feel like I am much more nicer than my photos.. : )

for me I'm not..I'd rather see myself in the mirror than looking in my own picture... that's why I'm not fun of having pictures by myself ... but still I Love having pictures when I'm with my special someone... and have some remembrance for that moment by that picture.
