    I think there is definitely posing involved.

    I've never been photogenic at all.

    I'm not very photogenic. My smile is usually dorky looking or I look mean because I'm not smiling enough. I hated having my picture taken as a child because I was always told to smile more and then when I did smile I was told it was fake looking. Same with posing. How can you make it not look fake? There must be some trick to it that I'm not grasping.

    I know how to pose people in a flattering way but really and truly some people look better on camera then in person and some are the opposite. It's a total trip!
    Could it be a personality thing? Some people are more outwardly expressive, could that translate somehow into being photogenic?

    Same here. My sister is way more photogenic and she has more rounded facial features.

    I don't think so. I think it's just some odd mystical thing. There's no explanation for it.

    Either that or some people just have those faces that look good all the time just regardless of what they do.

    I'm very expressive, and I have very little concept of how to pose for anything. I'm terrible in a photograph. This isn't completely related, because she is photogenic, but I had Blake Lively pegged as an ENFP because her expressions, it's like her face is made of rubber.

    I'm decently photogenic in still photos, but hate candid shots and video. My face is attractive enough in real life, but not symmetrical at all. When I see myself on camera, I nitpick like crazy.

    Speaking of malleable faces, I've always been fascinated by the type of model whose face is completely changed by makeup. Like, they could look like a completely different person depending on the makeup they wear. Or they could be average looking but have a face that is the perfect canvas for makeup. I look like myself no matter what type of makeup application I go for. I always wished I had a chameleon face like that.

    I don't know. I have a pretty angular face with strong, high cheek bones. I'm not photogenic at all. I don't have one decent picture. That's why I never post pics of myself. I look much better in person.

    My sister has a round face, with this cute upturned nose. I always hated how great her pictures looked and mine sucked. She's a pretty lady but I also think ESFPs just know how to make themselves shine no matter what.

    People tell me I am photogenic. I think it is because I can easily do a natural smile or whatever because I just imagine something that I like and bam there it is. Or if I'm having trouble with it I'll think of a joke and tell it and then laugh to get the natural smiley face going.

    Although I probably look like a dork in candid stuff because I never shut up. But I can get "in the zone" for a pic with almost no notice. "oh, need a happy face? bam!"
