Any tips for taking selfies?
I look OK when I look in the mirror, but as soon as I take a picture I look fucking horrible. I just want to try my luck on tinder. ;_;
>tfw look 6/10 in mirrors and on my phone camera
>realize my phone camera is also reflecting my picture just like a mirror
>change the setting
>look like absolute garbage 2/10 tier
IS THIS WHAT PEOPLE SEE ME AS? There goes what little self esteem i have left.
This holy shit, in the mirror my features look so much better, especially when I take off my glasses.
Fuck selfies, pic related another blotched attempt to try Tinder.
Take the photo with the cam a bit up, find an good angle and an good expression, also taking various pictures can help to choose the best one, also don't use lots of photos from the same place as it would be strange for them when seeing it.
for tips on how to talk, tho, dont go with a bland "hi smiley face", do something funny, maybe see her profile to check things she like and talk about it, don't fake to be someone you aren't but try to not be an creep.
It's partially your angle. You want it to be facing down or on level.
Your hair and glasses are also shit tier. Change them (or maybe consider contact lenses, that's easier) and try different angles and you'll look good.
your brain likes what you see more of, so when you look in the mirror you see what your brain likes and your brain tells you it looks good. Vs the less seen you that looks like shit. To others, you look like the good version of you since their brains act in exactly the same way.
Yeah they did a study on it
You're brain gets so disturbed that it considers it ugly/deformed. The less symmetrical your face, the more this will happen. It doesn't make sense for it to be ugly because they are literally the same features.
You need a proper camera and lighting, as well as angle/distance to get a good picture.
There's a reason people use 50,000$ cameras and tons of lights and props for photoshoots and not just some shithead iphone camera.
but it looks SO much fucking worse I can't believe its just a brain trick. do i just look like garbage in general then and my brain tricked me to think my mirror image looks good too?
One side of my face is so bloated looking when it's not being reflected by a mirror.. fug
I don't get it, why does just reversing the image make me look like complete shit
I can't even place what is different when comparing side by side
is it just my mind tricking me and the photo is how I actually look, there's such a huge difference and it's quite unsettling
look at the file name, he's just pretending to be some aspie from /r/rate me.
here's a whole collection of normies you can pretend to be!!
>I can't believe its just a brain trick
yeah science tends to be counter intuitive because people are only primed for survival
>do i just look like garbage in general then and my brain tricked me to think my mirror image looks good too?
your mirror image looks good to you. there's nothing more to it than that. As for whether or not you look good, we'd need an image to give our viewpoint on that
You don't need to take a selfie, you can take a picture of yourself in the mirror. Or alternatively you can go old school and ask a friend to take a picture for you.
>thought I was good at taking selfies
>I'm actually not good at it
>I'm actually ugly
look up to how Gerald from MChemicalRomance styles his hair and dresses amd do that.
you will pull some young qts in their late teens.
