Easy question, do you? Well hopefully you know what I mean anyway.

Personally, whenever I look in the mirror I think my face is quite symmetrical, but in pictures I'm always very assymetrical. I know some people think they look the same in pictures and people who don't so I know there are different point of views.

What about, a photo of your reflection in a mirror?

I look bad in both, but slightly tolerable in the mirror.

The mirror is your reflection, and a picture isn't. So a picture is different since it isn't backwards.

I look better when the lights are dim or off.

The reason you look better in the mirror is because most peoples faces are slightly assymetrical and you see yourself in the mirror different than the way everybody else sees you. When you see yourself in a picture, you're seeing what everyone usually sees, and to you that looks weird.
Look at a mirror together with a friend and concentrate on their face...you'll notice that he/she looks different than always.

I look equally terrible in both forms, although in different ways.

What?

You know how eyes work aye? If we saw ourselves differently to how others see us it would always apply.

In mirrors you can see how you look and adjust yourself subconsciously whereas in a photo you look as much a twat as usual.

I always look better (to myself, anyway) in the mirror.

I think it has something to do with the way we perceive ourselves. The majority of our self-image is determined in front of the mirror, so when confronted with pictures of ourselves we look flipped, any slight imperfections are way more apparent to us. But everyone else thinks the photos look fine. (This drives me insane because I have a bit of residual crossjaw. My face looks normal in front of the mirror, so in pictures my jaw seems twice as out of place to me than it actually is.)

I look better in the mirror for sure. I'm filled with dread when I those emails saying '_____ tagged a photo of you'

I'm much better when holding the camera

Mirror... I don't even know why. I might look at myself in a mirror, look fine, and then take a picture without moving but somehow end up looking ridiculously bored or tired. Cameras hate me.

No.

Mirrors show a reflection, pictures are not a reflection. In your reflection left is right and right is left. Its not that way in a picture.

That's not what he meant. At all. He was implying we see what we want to see of ourselves - but only in mirrors which is ridiculous if nothing else.

A mirror is always head on to your face, when I see pics from the side it looks weird.

My mirror acts like the painting of dorian grey, much worse condition really.

uh, no. I was implying that you only see yourself in the mirror which flips everything around ( right is left and vice versa). In pictures you see yourself the way everyone else does so you look different.
#34
I look better in the mirror, why?

Because all my pictures from the past five or so years were from when I had freakishly long hair, now it's all short and spiky.

I don't notice a difference tbh, I look good in some pics, others I don't, same result as when I look in the mirror!

Sometimes I look like a handsome guy in the mirror, sometimes I look like a handsome guy in pictures. I find most of the time though, I look better in the mirror then in pics.
But that's not saying a lot.
