I mean, I look good when I see myself in the mirror.....But, I look ugly(And I'm not kidding) when I see myself talking in a video, or perhaps a candid pic...

So, how do people see me....? Do they see me the way I see myself in the mirror..? Or is the camera honest?!

    Not sure about either one. Light and shadows play differently at different angles. You may see yourself as unbecoming but others see you differently. We tend to be more critical of ourselves.

    I'm the same way. I think I look good in the mirror and am usually horrified to see myself in pictures. I try not to get caught in photos for this reason other than I think they steal my soul.

    The camera is influenced by light where as the mirror is influenced by my mind... -_-

    I think it really doesn't matter what others think. If you feel good, then that is all that matters.

    The mirror is always more accurate, ever notice that someone who you think is unattractive always looks good in photos or someone who looks good looks bad in photos? some people are photogenic and some aren't. Look at yourself in the mirror and have a friend stand beside you, look at her and you will notice she looks just like herself, then take a picture of her and you will see the differences, the mirror never lies, however cameras do.

    When you look at yourself in the mirror, you see what you want to see. When it's a photo, you can't hide from anything.

    I guess I would say the camera but I heard that when you look at yourself in the mirror the way you view yourself is different from what's really there because people always see themselves in the mirror as a little more attractive in their eye then they really are... it's weird but I read some article on it lol, try googling it. But keep in mind with pictures you could be in bad lighting, it could be a low quality camera, it could be you are unprepared for the picture, there's all kinds of reasons why in some pictures you look worse than you did in the mirror right before. So in ways the camera does show what's honestly there but there are other important factors to take into consideration. But yeah I hate the way I look in most photos lol. here's some info regarding the idea we see ourselves more attractive in the mirror than others see us or in photos, it's very interesting lol :)

    Gabs I'm really glad this question has been asked as I've wondered it so many times myself. I never look the same to me in a picture as I do in the mirror.
    And yet - when I see pics of my friends, they look the same to me in the pictures of them but of course I have no clue as to what they see in their mirrors - so - what gives?? Can't figure this one out no way, no how.

    The mirror is you looking at yourself.Some people don't like the way they look in a picture.I don't like my picture taken and usually try to avoid it.I alway's say is that really me?I then go look in the mirror and it makes me feel better.

    Most of the time when posing for a camera, it brings a certain insecurity and retreat to your persona which diminishes what you really have in you. There is much more to us than what a camera picks up just in a limited light spectrum. Stare that camera in the eye and let out your happy feelings, can't fake a smile, or the camera knows.

    You can't Photoshop with a mirror; what you see is what you get.

    Mirror is the winner BUT the camera is an eye-opener expectally when Candid unplanned photos are taken. It is often times those pictures which clue us in on how we really look.

    Gaby Baby ... Camera or Mirror doest Makes ANY difference . How you looks yourself in a mirror , same to same a camera mirror snap you the identical way ... Yes editing / Photoshop is not Quite Natural which unfortunately is today common trend ( not for me because i <3 Natural ) ...

    Tips :- Try using a Camera who's resolution is same or similar or identical to our eye resolution or in short a GOOD CAMERA ... Than you can eliminate the difference between Camera & mirror ...

    Problem :- Commonly people use Camera of BAD RESOLUTION Power which can makes Mirror =/= Camera - hence you can find alot of difference when you see yourself in Mirror (100% clear ) than the picture you took by a camera (30% clear ) ... ( The Camera Resolution Power is very bad , hence you cant equal it to mirror ) . So Definitely you will Look Clear & Good in Mirror as compared to Picture taken by BAD RESOLUTION CAMERA ...
