Is anyone else retardedly unphotogenic?

I'm by no means a bad looking guy, but getting a good photo of myself is next to impossible.

Almost every pic of me that gets taken features either:
- moonface effect or double-chin effect (from bad angle)
- one eye more open than the other (from bad light)
- horrible skin tone (from excessive flash or bad light)
- tramp-face 5AM facial stubble (from bad...timing?)
- all of the above

My grandchildren will think I was an ugly bastard in my youth.

Someone tell me I'm not the only one!

I am.

It's gotten to the point that I deliberately make my face ugly/ruin ppls pics when they take pictures of me, in my attempts to dissuade them from taking more.

I suppose such a sentiment could be interpreted as a thinly veiled ploy for attention / an indication of insecurity / poor self esteem / a discrepency between what people think they look like and what they actually look like to others / people tending to have cameras when they are getting stupendously drunk

but generally I do not dig seeing pictures of myself

I've always said their either I'm no where near as good looking as I think I am from looking in the mirror, or else I'm cursed in photos. There are about three good photos of me in the universe. My problem is this stupid expression I get on my face (like that Friends episode).

this, i find funny.

EVERY pic i have either taken of you, or seen, has been marvelous.

but jumping on the wagon - about 1 in every 10 shots of me turns out great - you have to catch *just* the right angle otherwise it's ALL wrong. eep.

i have about a BILLION of those 9/10 photos in my personal stock and will post a couple just to prove it. i'm all doube chin, teeth, furrow-brow and nose most of the time.

the key is finding your side. seriously it sounds stupid,.... but i really am unphotogenic. like horribly. for my work i have to often do photoshoots and they have to be really good at knowing how to work shadows and angles and all that jazz. i had one shoot where every single picture has been god awful. now i know when im taking a picture where to look and how to tilt my face so i dont look retarded.

People who call themselves unphotogenic but aren't are LAME.

Littlenutty, post a bad pic of you and you'll be forgiven.

i am totally unphotogenic. i look like a beast in every photo that's been taken of me. ever. maybe i just think i'm better looking than i actually am. in any case, no one should be allowed to take photos of me.

I am invariably the guy whose mouth is open saying something, in the most unattractive way imaginable, the moment the picture is taken

Tho a photographer friend explained the 'relax your jaw and stick it out a bit' rule when being photographed, and that has helped a lot. If you are unphotogenic, try it. Nothing crazy, just drop your jaw a little and stick it out maybe 0.5cm. Makes a ton of difference.
