Proof Not All Sides Are Your Good Side

Isn’t it just the worst to be unphotogenic? There is something so cruel about feeling good, looking good in the mirror, and then snapping a picture and questioning everything you thought was true.

Not all of us can be blessed to take a perfect picture every time, so it’s something that we need to learn how to live with, and maybe even embrace.

Just Having A Relaxing Picnic

Too bad that’s not really reflected in this casual, fake candid photo gone wrong. Like, she’s not not cute, and her skin is glowing, but I still don’t think this was the look she was going for.

A Classic Beach Photo

All these Instagram influencers want us to believe that taking cute, perfectly windswept photos at the beach is just something that happens so easily. But guess what? The reality is tangled hair and wind in your clothes.

Is That Tasty?

There should be a rule about not taking pictures of your friends while they are eating. Take a cute picture with their food before they dig in, but no one looks cute mid-bite.

Well, That’s Unfortunate

Nature is a cruel mistress. It can be a beautiful day and you can still end up soaking wet standing on a pier after having this embarrassing moment saved to someone’s camera roll.

What Would You Call This Look?

As many of us know, parents and technology don’t mix. So, this young lady can’t really be surprised that her dad failed so terribly at taking a picture of her, but here we are.

Wow, That One Is Going On The ‘Gram

Why are boyfriends the worst? I mean, they’re the worst for a lot of reasons, but how did this poor girl’s boyfriend think that this was a cute picture of her on the carousel? Like, he took this and then handed the phone back to her like he was done.

Always Check The Mirrors

This is why there is such a risk to taking a selfie in the bathroom or even in your bedroom. You don’t know what’s lurking in the background, or in this case, in the foreground.

Someone Call A Priest

Panoramas weren’t ready to be shared with the world. So rarely do they actually turn out well and they always capture us at our worst. Look at this beautiful couple! Their vacation picture was ruined by a sneeze and panorama.

Flip That Hair Girl

Any time you go out of your way to try and be sexy, especially on camera, it always backfires. It’s a wonder that any of us try anymore, but we hold out for that one picture that might work.

Oh, Those Low-Light Pictures

It’s hard to take a cute picture when there isn’t a lot of natural light. The initial thought would be that low lighting is mysterious and sexy, but we just end up looking blurry.

Angles Are Everything

Do you have that one friend who always asks you to take photos for them, but then they always take terrible pictures of you? Yeah, you know the type. Maybe we need new friends.

How’s That Taste?

It’s important to let loose and be goofy sometimes, but maybe make sure that none of your friends with a camera phone are snapping pictures they’re going to post on social media later.

That’s A Lot Of Green

The lightning is all wrong in this picture! This is another one of those cases where he asked his friend to take a picture, so he did and then handed the phone back. No! Tell me to work those angles, play with the lighting.

The Work Behind The Magic

Mirror selfies are so satisfying when we can get them right, but a mirror picture of us taken by another person is usually a cruel joke that no one actually finds funny.

She Looks Mad

I’m not sure why anyone tries to take pictures of themselves in the pool. All the many rules we’ve learned about taking cute pics are thrown out the window when you add water.

What Cruel Joke Is This?

I don’t know about you, but I would never throw a horse mask at someone holding power tools and then take a picture. Is it funny? Yes. But could it go horribly wrong? Probably.

Supermodels Of The World

Now, she looks really pretty in this picture, but it’s worth noting that the dog here totally stole the show. If you have a pet that good looking, you should know they’re going to outshine you every time.

Speaking Of Pets…No One Is Safe

Even pets fall prey to pictures being taken at the worst possible moment. At least when you capture a cat mid-yawn, it’s still pretty cute even if it’s also weird-looking.

That’s A Sleepy Pup

Just when you think that your pets can’t do any wrong and will always be cute no matter what, you catch them sleeping with their tongue out. That’s OK, though, you still love them.

Who Needs Cute Pictures Anyway?

At least knowing that our furry friends aren’t safe from a bad picture makes it less traumatizing that bad pictures of us are probably going to exist as well. No one is safe.
