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

I basically look retarded if I show teeth. My lips are too big or something.

The responses in this thread might be the best overall representation of the "hipinion demographic" to date.

I feel like the proverbial hipinion wiki would be pretty accurate if it just read, "Mostly guys who don't, can't, or won't smile in pictures."

my dad refused to smile in pictures for the first 10 years of my life. it was the most aggravating/douchey thing and there's all these pictures now of me in pigtails, beaming, and him just scowling behind me.

I can smile, I can look sane, and I can know the camera's there, but I can only do two of those things at once.

i'm facially incapable of smiling with teeth locked; like the dynamics of my skull and facemuscle just won't permit it. the corners of my mouth just won't go high enough to make the transition from grimace to smile. i can only smirk, or do a full open-mouthed yokel grin (which is therefore what i tend to do). i'd have surgery to correct this problem if it was available.

when i smile non-spontaneously it looks bad

when i smile spontaneously it looks worse, or just as bad but in a different way

usually go for a mixture of these two

yeah for real. you look fine. why are you looking up and like kind of grinning?

okay I don't really know "how you are supposed to look in photos" but this kinda of post is like a couple rungs below duckface.

that said I'm the king of sour/dour/serious face in photos unless I'm totally cracking up and it's a candid.

i had really crooked teeth until i was 14 and braces until i was 16 so i've been smiling without teeth for the majority of my life, and i'm not really sure how to include my teeth in the whole equation

there's a whole series of horrible photographs from last halloween where everyone is grinning and i am scowling despite having tried my hardest to smile

Well yeah, I don't disagree that it's awkward, but its even worse if I try to look at the camera. I should take a picture of my ID, it's so bad, ha. I think it's a result of the general awkwardness of trying to force a smile, as previously mentioned throughout the thread.
