I hate being in front of the ****ing camera. The worst part about it is that those who know you hate it always try to take a goddam picture of you and they think it's funny.

The only pictures I have posed for since I was a kid are for sports, and with the teams, our rules were no smiling. Gotta show off a bit of intimidation and show the team is serious.

No, I never show my teeth when I get photographed. For one thing, I don't like my teeth....they're straight and everything, but I still don't like them. And my cheeks look like a chipmunk's when I really smile O.O. I try to avoid cameras when I can, anyway.

My cheeks do that too! They poof up like hamster cheeks, my smiles truly horrific. Nowadays though I don't mind so much. Yeah the photo might be horrendous but it will still remind me of a fun day out.:D

I hate having my picture taken, but if it happens I try to smile. I'm really bad at it, though - it always feels sooo fake to me, no matter what the situation.
It doesn't come naturally to me.

whenever i try to smile for the camera, i unintentionally over-exaggerate it and it makes my jaw look weird/overly prominent. so i usually just try to do a half smile. then i look more like 'me', at least.
