Strange deal going on with photos

If I look in the mirror I see one thing. If I look at a pic taken of me the same day in the same outfit the picture looks totally different from the mirror. Why is that? What’s going on?

Probably just the Optics of the camera on your phone.

Same with me… I think I look super weird in pics ppl take of me… but in pics I take I look like me like what I see in the mirror

The angle you take the picture at, the lighting, and the type of camera used can also affect the way you look. Some fitness models take pictures of themselves before and after using professional lighting/poses/angles to show the difference it makez.

Thanks @ninjastar . I look really big in the mirror but more slender in my husbands pics of me. It’s so strange. I’ll read that article now

Some pics I look like a movie star…others I look like a stunned dolphin.

Keep clicking til you find one you like.

Maybe your mirror is worn out and you need to buy a new, fresh one that reflects better.

Yeah. I’m 10 pounds overweight, so the mirror might need to be replaced. Or else my husband is good at taking shots with his phone
