Hello Friends :) I just had holiday with my family this week. And i enjoyed it lot. Finally at home. And i was watching photos this morning. Just thought that I don't have that photogenic face like others. But when I saw photos again with other family members and cousins they were thinking the same. I mean they were thinking that they don't have photogenic face like others and me..I got some compliment too.. Ha ha.. I guess everybody's thinking is same. I mean nobody's like their own photos but they do like photos of others. Is it normal ??? What do you think about this ?? Do you have photogenic face ?

Hi AKP Whatare your plans buddy? Join the Gladrags Men Contest Anyways, I agree that many of us like to see pictures of others than themselves. And I think it is quite normal as we almost everyday see our own faces

Dear... I am already an International figure now... being here at MyLot has made me one... now with so much to cover... who cares about Gladrags Even, they will reject me because of my not so well grown beard and the long hair Like you I never liked the pics of mine. Though to some of my friends they looked good or at least better than me.

Its a normal thing. People dislikes their own photos but others like the same one. So its because our mentality than our face.

Hi anand, I will not show you my face, but each time I went on a TV stage, the production told me that I had a photogenic face, so I believe the professional .

I am not spending my day in front of a mirror, but I don't dislike my face, though it is not so beautiful that when I was 20. What I hate is my voice when I hear it on a record. I have a horrible accent that I can't jugulate, and I am living in a town which is supposed to have one of the "purest" French accents : why am I not born here ?

I guess voice recording is also same as seeing our own photo... Well as professionals are saying you must be good looking now too..so forget about your 20.

I like my photos even if I do not have such photogenic face-I think so! If the photo is not like what I want I will delete it and keep the better one. Easy huh?? As I am sure from hundreds to thousands of our photos there must be some of them which are good and better out of others.

I do the same thing.. Even i delete the worse photos of mine from bunch. But still better we take others opinion before deleting... We may get good comments for pics which we thinks not good.

Yes. At least I hope I do. With the number of pictures that we have to take, I would hope this Puerto Rican girl is photogenic enough. lol I think when we see ourselves we do not see what others see. Because we see ourselves daily, I feel we are our worse critics.

Yeah super photogenic.. True .. Most of all people dislikes their own photos in compare of others. I guess its because of our mentality. I guess we should ask opinion about our pic to others instead of self describing. Possible that other people may like the same pic.

Nah... I don't have a photogenic face, just like others. I even tried to not get photographed! But no more with that attitude, or else I'll be wiped out of history.. nothing to show my grandchildren(??) When I was a child, my face was so ever-changing, due to my impressionable mind. A lot of that is captured in photos, thank God! And none was so photogenic...

Ha ha .. i guess everybody thinks the same way.. In past day even i was avoiding to be in photos but i guess now my mind is changed totally.. I want to be in every photos with friends and family so i can remember those great memories in future..

Today I am more confused and in a playful mood... So when hora dear says - "When I was a child, my face was so ever-changing, due to my impressionable mind. A lot of that is captured in photos, thank God! And none was so photogenic" - this was. Going by logic, as it was, it is not and this means he is photogenic for sure... @AKP: Watchout the Gladrags now... you are not the only one participating

Hi akp, hm....is this a trick question to find out if we are narcissistic or something? I've always thought I have a very photogenic face. You see, I'm not beautiful, but there are some photographs which showed me looking like I could be beautiful. That was when I was younger. Now that I am older, I don't like taking photographs as I am now too fat and no angle and no quality of a camera will be able to hide that.

Hi their :) About narcissistic . ..As you remind here we can know about that too Don't think about how you looking... I always love to be in all photographs without regarding the outcome.. But that's the different thing that most of all outcomes are not that good.. But still I do love myself.. narcissistic.

Fine...have it your way...I'm narcissistic...happy now....you just have to pry that out of me, don't you.... I hate looking at my pictures, that's why I don't like to be in pictures anymore. I try to stay away from the camera....like that's going to help people think I'm beautiful

I wasn't trying to pull that thing out. So sorry about that. And I guess being self lover is good. I used to be same. And yeah if you want to avoid your photos then just used to take photos so you can avoide your pics. In past I was useing the same trick.

hi, there is no any thing like photogenic face and non photogenic face.If the person who is a photographer is good at his work then every face would be good in the photo.

Is it... But i still don't like mine photo sometime taken by professional photographer.. I guess its normal that people likes others faces more in compare of their own faces in photos..

I believe there are those who are really photogenic and those who are not. Like for example I've seen one actress in person and I was so surprised to see how beautiful she is in person but how come the camera is not able to register that beauty in photos and in movies? But when it comes to judging oneself whether photogenic or not I think one just needs to be realistic. I don't believe that a person can't recognize this. I've had pictures that I really do cherish and even display them on my FB account because I found myself good on those photos but there are photos I just keep to myself because they are not worth displaying.

Well Its same with everyone. They likes some photos and dislikes some of them too. And about photogenic face, i guess people should take opinion from others for their own pics. As normally people dislikes their own photos more because of high expectation.

I feel that everybody is kind of judgemental of themselves when it comes to pictures. There's always gonna be something we find wrong with our face or body position on a pic, thats just how it is lol

Hi welcome to Mylot I am totally agree with you. People have over expectation for their own face and photo. So its normal that they dislikes their own photos.

hi akp nope I do not have a photogenic face as when people snap a shot of me I always feel I look like on oe America's most wanted women fugitives. and yet so many have told me that they liked my picture with our Lori the one on my face book account. It really focussed on my darn double chin. I think we are pretty normal ak p as most of us will say oh I am not photo genic but someone who is really stuck on themselves might say oh yes I really look good. thats self confidence or something.
@akp100 (13289)

Yes its quite normal.. And thats why better we takes others opinion for our own pics. Because mostly all people dislikes their own pics even they are good.

No, unfortunately I do not have the photogenic face. I always look terrible in photos and it would be nice to look presentable in photos. I've been told by my brother that I don't know how to pose in a ponytail, because I always look as if I'm doing something else besides looking at the camera. However there has been a few times I looked quite good or better than my thoughts I would. But they have always been in circumstances where a professional photographer was taking the photo so I think it really matters with the photographer and also the quality of the camera.

Sometimes even professional photographer don't satisfy with my photo .. And sometimes my cousin take better photograph of mine. So i guess its our thought/mentality that we dislikes our own photo.. May be because of high expectation. Thanks for responding.

Hi there, LOL! That was funny. I mostly find my photos a bit weird and unflattering. It is either I look big (like my head is huge) or I looked like a cartoon character. Maybe because we are not contented on how we look. I tend to be conscious about my pose and everything that it needs to be good all the time or I need to look good in photos. I think everyone would like to see a great photo of themselves right? LOL.

Surely everybody's want to be look good in all photos.. Hope this can be possible.. well I think people thinks that they having not so good pic.. But other can like the same pic. so better we take some others opinion for our own pic.

I guess you are right. Nobody likes their own face in the photograph. I always think that i don't look good but i always get a compliment about my looks in the picture. Though i have never tried photoshop at all and i take photos of myself from my cellphone which is very rare because i don't feel comfortable taking pictures of myself or having my pics taken. Yes i'm not comfortable having my pictures taken unless i am with a group of people but sometimes i have to for a charity modelling thing which doesn't happen everyday. I don't really know what photogenic is because i believe that every picture my camera captures of the people smiling, it comes out really nice.

Yup.. That's why i always try to give big smile in front camera. Yes same thing happen to me too.. I dislike my own pic but get good comments from others for a same pic. So yeah its people mentality.. So better we take others opinion for our own pics.

Hi akp, It is good to know that you have a photogenic face. I guess i do have a photogenic face because i get lots of compliments from people saying my photos are just so photogenic.Even my hubby's first sentence when he saw my photo was 'Oh! you are so photogenic'... i personally don't like any of my photographs (maybe some) but my family and friends tell me that i have a photogenic face!
