You could be a fitness model or look like the bottom of a garbage can. But most of us tend to fall somewhere near average.

And, for us, the difference between a bad and good picture can be genuinely consequential to our professional and dating lives. I want to know this about me! Camera distortion is ubiquitous in social media pictures — especially selfies. Most photographers say that the type of lens used also has a lot to do with it, and wide-angle lenses like the ones in our camera phones are big offenders.

Without that extra dimension, in photos, a human arm can look way smaller or larger than it really is. For this reason, professional models learn to manipulate their body shape by moving parts of themselves closer or farther from the lens. Photographers have long been known to note the difference between the on-camera and off-camera appearances of famous models.

Kate Moss, for example, has been rumored to look quite ordinary in the flesh. Not that I can personally confirm or deny. Our cameras are not as amazing. They can be adjusted to focus on highlights or shadows, but never both at once. What results is that pictures look cluttered, distracting, and crappy compared to what we had seen through our own two eyes.

Your personality, the sound of your voice, and yes, how you move your face and body, act as a strong filter that heavily influence whether people find you attractive or not. But you miss all of this in photos. Even when their physical features were presented accurately? It was the lack of movement at play.

Additionally, people often have awkward expressions in pictures that no one would have noticed in real life. As a consequence, sometimes we get photos of ourselves that are much worse than what we really look like! Beyonce wants this pic to be removed from the Internet. Given this, showing the truth of who you are — even in a strictly physical sense — is impossible to do in one picture. A Princeton study confirmed this. They found that different photos of the same person are perceived as if they are completely different people.

Why is this? Because we go too far with assumptions based on a photo. They are just as blinded by bias as we are. That photos show you just the way you are. Read on to learn 5 ways that pictures skew reality. More than likely, you were correct. The most common cause of camera distortion is that the subject is too close to the lens. A picture is 2D. This difference can have major implications.

Here’s Why You Look Good in the Mirror But Bad in Photos

Usually the greatest fear after a wild night of partying isn't what you said that you might regret, but how you'll look in your friends' tagged photos. Although you left the house looking like a 10, those awkward group selfies make you feel more like a 5, prompting you to wonder, "Why do I look different in pictures? Are pictures the "real" you or is it your reflection? Have mirrors been lying to us this whole time?? The answer to that is a bit tricky.

Have you ever wondered why your face looks just a little different in photos than it does reflected in the mirror? The mystery hit me when I was at home one day overanalyzing my face in the mirror and deciding that I looked good enough for a selfie. I probably took about 25 photos and I hated almost every single one.

We have spent our lives seeing our faces in the mirror. We have spent our lives seeing our faces in the mirror, and we have become used to seeing our face that way round. Most people part their hair on one side rather than the other. Most people have one eye slightly larger than the other. Most people have one curvier eyebrow and one straighter or pointier.
