do you smile in pictures

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

Not really. If you went through every single picture I've ever been in, there is probably more smirking than smiling. I'm the guy people are always getting mad at for not smiling in photos. Also, I'm not very photogenic so I hate taking pictures.

i tend to smirk 'cause a full smile is just too much work and instead end up looking like a smug asshole 85% of the time

in 6th grade when we were taking yearbook pictures the photographer told me to smile so i tried to smile, but he was still like "come on smile"--but i thought i already was smiling, so i tried harder, and this went on for a bit until the photographer finally gave up and was like whatever and he took the picture. in the picture i look like i just ate the sourest lemon while being incredibly constipated. any time i show the picture to someone they can't believe that i was trying to smile--they think i was just trying to make a funny face. since then i've spent lots of time practicing smiling in front of a mirror but it never looks not-embarrassing or at all heartwarming. but i don't want to look self-serious in pictures either (by not even attempting to smile), so i often do an exaggerated/ironic monkey smile (like this http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_WnCJlq_kUA8/R ... miling.jpg but more imperfectly and more obviously forced-- sometimes people are like "come on don't make faces [isobel]" in which case i try to pull off a smirk), tho i usually try to avoid being in photographs anyway or if i can't help being photographed i try to not face the camera, as if something else held my attention.

if you look at the camera and don't smile, you're either 13-16 years old, or a prick

I'm really uncomfortable in front of the camera so even when I try to smile it ends up looking like this

i'm in the isobel camp. I just can't fuckin smile when someone tells me to. I have to genuinely be happy or laughing at something, and that feeling usually disappears the second some asshole tries to take a picture of me.
