I can't take a good picture on purpose. Whenever someone is taking pictures, I look good only if I'm not aware of it. Can't seem to pull off a natural look when in front of the cam.

There's actually a pretty good reason why you perceive your reflection differently than your image in photographs. The person you see in the mirror is not you; rather it is a flipped version of you. If you have a mole on your right cheek, the person in the mirror has a mole on his left cheek. If you part your hair on the right side, your mirror image has a part on his left side. While our faces are largely symmetric, the asymmetries in our faces are important cues that our brains notice and process for facial recognition. Because we normally see ourselves in the mirror, our brains get somewhat confused when we see a "true" image of ourselves where the asymmetries are flipped relative to our reflection.
Radiolab ran an interesting segment on one of their podcasts that discusses this issue: http://www.radiolab..../mirror-mirror/

Shut up, beautiful. Leave the image insecurities to people who deserve them. Like bronies.
Bronies: no matter what the mirror tells you, you are so beautiful on the inside. Unfortunately, your outside is so hideous you need to get that inner beauty out with a scalpel after watching a couple episodes of House.

All this self-deprecating makes me realize that there's no need to be insecure about a picture. Everyone's too busy being focused on their own hideousness that they won't notice yours.

I'm too busy actually improving myself to self-deprecate these days.

Though I never said I had picture taking issues, I purposely make horrible faces cause its funnier that way.
