The biggest mistake many girls make is that they use a mobile phone camera. This distorts the image making closer things, like your nose, hands etc. look bigger than they really are. Try it , you’ll see what I mean. I have a pic of my daughter holding our dog in her arms. It looks HUGE – at least 2 or 3 times bigger than it is – and this is with a decent I-phone. What do you think this kind of distortion does to our face?
Again and again I have noticed that the pic I take of myself in a mirror, looks quite different from the image I see of myself.
I’m not an expert on optics but I believe the tiny lenses in phones are some kind of wide-angle or “fish eye” lens (hence closer objects appearing bigger) more suitable to landscape pics.
So if you want to look like you really look like, then use a decent proper camera.
