whenever being photographed, do you smile or do you make a poker face?i usually smile. some people fake it, like they smile for the heck of it. but me, i try to genuinely smile. i would feel happy so that my smile would come out naturally. besides that, i actually look better smiling so i might as well get photographed that way so that my pictures will show a more good-looking me. normally, i have a sad face. so do you say cheese... or don't you?

im addicted to pictures to say the least and i swear in every picture i have a smile on my face... im constantly smiling even when things are going so wrong.. im not a very unpleasent person but a happy go lucky type of person to be around. i never say cheese unless the photographer or whoever is taking the picture says to say cheese then i will say it but otherwise i dont

I am very camera-shy; I never know what to do or how to pose, hence, absolutely awful photos.

maybe you should try taking pictures of yourself and find your best angle. try different poses and different smiles... like try a grin, a toothy smile, a wide smile, an open-mouthed smile... and see where you would look best. then at least, the next time you'll be photographed, you'll know how to do it.

I hate the way I look in photographs. I always smile in family pictures to please my mother, but I hate the way I look and think my teeth look awful and huge. In friends photos I practise posing a bit differently and sometimes don't even try to smile at all. I can't ever seem to get it right though. I rarely get a photo of me that I like. :(

they call it "photogenic", used to describe a person who looks good in pictures. guess you're not photogenic. ;) some people do look better without a smile though. maybe that's you.
