Do you look good in picture or in person?

I'm not photogenic. Or should I say not in pictures taken by a photographer whom I dont know. I love taking pictures of me and other people but when it comes to be taken picture from people that I'm not closely related, I feel shy and awkward. So I think in general that I look good in person and not so much in picture. How about you?

My friends say I am good in picture, but to be honest, I am not good at making poses :(

I only look good in photos, and only photos that "I" take. Which is why i try to avoid the camera at most times. It's not that i'm particularly ugly (or atleast i hope i'm not) it just depends on the angle etc..

I'm the same way when it comes to taking pictures, when i'm getting pictures taken with friends just having a good time, i think i look nice, when i'm in front of people i don't know i get nervous and it comes out in my facial expression, and i hate them pictures then, but until i get my hair all one color again, i will not like any pictures i'm in lol

I think i look more beautiful in the picture, than to my personal looks.. i believe that i am photogenic in picture but less beautiful in personal..it's all because i am not much used of make-up or anything..but i look good when the camera does flash on..

I don't know the person when they give me a picture but they all insist that it was me. lolz.. I think I look good more when I look in a mirror than in a photograph..lolz I don't why. But theirs something in the mirror that the camera can't record.

everyone looks more lively in person. So do I. My boyfriend usually snap me anywhere and anytime he feels like it. Some are terrible, some are ok, just a few look good. I love to retouch and post all of it on facebook.

I hate having my photo taken! I love taking pictures, both of friends, animals, landscapes etc, but I usually hide behind my camera when someone else starts taking pictures. It doesn't matter who takes the picture, I don't like it anyway :-/ And nowadays people insist on showing you the picture at once, so you have to look at yourself *sigh*
