Some people complain that they NEVER look good in photos, despite using several techniques like angling the camera down, tilting their head, the “knee pop,” and of course “duckface.”
In a new poll, 49% of people say they look better in person than in photos. 13% say the opposite, that they look better in photos.
23% of people say there’s “no difference,” and 15% aren’t sure.
Women are more likely to say they look better in person, while men are more likely to say it makes “no difference.”
Younger people are more likely to say that they look better in photos. (POSSIBLY because they’ve become experts at taking flattering selfies, and using filters.)
People were also asked if “being photogenic” is a SKILL. 21% of people think it’s something that can be learned, while 54% say it comes naturally.
