Do you like having your photo taken?

Smile! - Having my photo taken in London in the late '80s or very early '90s.

Most people like having their photo taken, but it's not always fun. In my past I've attended long photographic sessions which can be stressful. How about you? Do you like being snapped for posterity; or do you flee shyly from all cameras?

I am always ready to be taken a photo. But only for a few ones. I cant stand for a long photo sessions as you have said. In fact, I was really tired during the photo session of my marriage itself. It was really horrible to stand for long hours taking photos or videos. Personally , I cant do that.

I don't really like to have my picture taken. I don't mind it sometimes, but I usually think that I don't look very good in pictures, so then I don't like it. lol I sort of try to avoid getting my picture taken if I can!

I don't like getting my picture taken. It feels so fake; the generic photo with the generic smile. I love spontaneous photos, ones that are taken without your knowledge. It shows who you really are. In that case, I enjoy getting my photo taken since it captures the genuine memory of who I was at that point.

No, I hate it. I have literally hundred of photos from over the years and I'd be hard pressed to find one of myself that I like. I just don't seem to photograph well. I have a friend who is a photographer and she is at me to take one of me and she promises it will turn out nice, but who can really be bothered?

I like having pictures taken but often get nervous in front of the lenses
