Thus, we are often disappointed or let down when we see the image, remarking “I look like that?”
Technically speaking, the selfie is a distorted representation of your face. Because of the wide angle used so closely to the face, it appears we have a longer nose, a larger forehead, and a smaller chin. These are the most pronounced features at the angle of the shot.
It’s when we don’t recognize who we are in the images we have of ourselves that we say: “I’m not photogenic.”
I believe selfies can be used as a means towards self-discovery, when is done properly, it is a way to see yourself and overall, a fun way to connect with friends.
