Does anyone else HATE having their pictures taken?

Postby corey#8 » Thu Apr 30, 2009 12:58 pm

GOOD GOD, I don't know why but lately I've grown to HATE having my pictures taken.

I'm with George Carlin on this one, what's the point in taking pictures anyway? Do you really need to go back and relive something that happened a few minutes ago? Why not just remember it?

It REALLY bothers me...

If you don't like having your picture taken then don't. So people like having their picture taken some don't, everybodies different. Don't let it bother you.

I do and I don't. Pictures can be fun, but I'm always self-conscious about pictures of me in them, most of the time I feel like I look like crap lol.

I hate having my picture taken because I think I look like a fool when I smile... my picture has been taken a handful of times over several years and I've made it a point to not look at any of them.

It's especially nerve-racking when you have friends who like to take pictures and INSIST that you be apart of it, despite your protest.

I only don't mind my picture being taken when my hair is styled a certain way and I'm dressed a certain way.

I like to look my absolute best in photos, If I feel I don't look good then I won't have my photo taken.

I love taking pics of people and filming them (im really into filmmaking and photography), but I can't stand being in front of the camera.

Ironic, isn't it?....

I also like taking pistures of others but hate it when other people take pictures of me. Well, the finger always tends to help. :|
