I never have been one that really liked having my picture taken. I usually am the one taking the pictures. I have very few pictures of myself.My granddaughter is very photogentic, she loves getting her picture taken. She is a model.She is 10 years old. We went to her photo shoot a few weeks ago, it took 2 hours.She had to change into 4 differant outfits. I can not imagine myself being in front of the camera that long. Do you like having your picture taken?

No, I do not like my picture taken. I also have very few photos of me. For me taking the pictures is a lot of fun. It's funny I can't sit still long enough for someone to take a picture of me but I can be still enough to take pictures. It's silly, I know but the truth. So you are not alone in disliking getting your picture taken.

I am like you. And I can not follow instructions very well either. If they tell me to move to the right I will move left!!

Oh no, me neither!! I have hardly any pics of me in the house at all, I should have more really as my children will have nothing to remember me by should the worst ever happen, they will just have no memories to look at at all. I hate seeing myself in photos, it makes me feel really self conscious, however the kids are a different story, there are hundreds of them, I love taking photos of them!! They love to pose too.

i wouldnt mind having my picture taken, it just depends if its on a good day that im in a good mood or just the way i look that day, im not saying that people dont like the way they look in pictures but some people have a curtain way they like to look before they like there picture taken. I wouldnt mind it anyday, but some people are picky or just stubborn. i'd have to say i like having my picture taking becuase i think its a way to express yourself.

HHHHaaattteee having my picture taken! I cannot stand to have it done. I too, am usually the one taking the pictures. I am constantly taking pictures of my husband and kids. I do wish that I liked getting my picture taken though, because when my kids look back at the pictures of their youth, they are going to see lots of pictures of them with dad, but none with mom.

i also have very few pictures of me, I just don't take very good pictures, so I am the one with the camera, I see on myspace that a lot of the kids have camera phones and they take loads of pictures of themselves and post them on Myspace, I guess that is good if you look good in them, but i dont't look good in any picture.

I am not one who appreciates having my picture taken either! Much to the constant dismay of everyone who ever tries to include me in a picture; I generally will do whatever I can to get myself out of shot! I am the guy who always offers to TAKE the group photo rather than be in it! I am not sure why.... But I CAN say that there are very few photographs that have been taken of me that I do actually like!

Yes, I like having my picture taken. I usually bring a digital camera with me when I go out. I want to take pictures of myself, the friends that I am with and the places where I am at. It is always nice to take pictures to remind you of the wonderful memories that you have had.

I like to have picture taken, it's nice to look up the old photos from time to time. It reminds you all the good memory and it's interesting to see how much you have grown up. My uncle is the one who loves taking picture for everyone in the family. He's not a photographer but is close to professional :)

I like pictures and yes, I want my picture to be taken but it's for a candid shots when you're travelling or if there's a special occassion. I seldom take picture of others. Most of the time, I'm always on the picture =P

I take pictures occasionally and not every time. When i go to some beautifully places like beaches,mountains etc.., I take my picture there. I take it because i have a proof that i have went there so i take pictures there.

Well I used to love having my picture taken when I was younger and I used to strike all these model poses. But now I am more self conscious and hate having my picture taken. I usually like taking pictures of other people but not of myself.
