I’m sure many know the situation: in the mirror you’re the same person in the photo is completely different. If the camera leaves the filter. Or does it mirror?
Likestory.net decided to find out what is still closer to our actual appearance: reflection or image. And why we often perceive ourselves in the mirror and photos in different ways.
The psychological aspect
Often in the mirror we look home. But at home we always feel most free and relaxed. In the frame we find ourselves, as a rule, “foreign territory,” a more tense and unprepared. So sometimes it happens that in the mirror before leaving for the party, we look so perfect, and the footage from the event show the opposite.
The fact that our face is not symmetrical. And absolutely at all: someone is expressed stronger, someone weaker. Because of this, and there is all the confusion. Every morning in the mirror we look at ourselves with a more traditional under the traditional angle, and as a result we get used to his reflection from one angle. And in the photo no one warns you, when, how and which side will make the. Of course, if you are a star, for example like Audrey Hepburn, which is almost always photographed with one of her best angle.
Any coverage has its own temperature. But when we look in the mirror, we do not attain these temperature characteristics, since our brain as a “supercomputer” all the difference calls and “shows” the complexion, to which we are accustomed. And the picture is fixed valid coverage — all offsets the difference in temperature of light. Therefore, in life on our face can play a variety of flowers and shadows of variegated lamps, but in the mirror we will perceive themselves ordinary, whereas the resent, because it reflects the real light situation.
Focusing on individual objects
Do not forget also that typically in a mirror we focus on one part of our reflection and do not see the big picture. And in the photo we see everything holistically and to notice what did not give the value in reflection: for example, we see bad posture, the hands are not visible, etc.
In reflection we can always see themselves “mirrored” and get used to perceive themselves. And in the pictures we are who others see us. And it is this unusual mirror “I” we are often surprised at the photos.
From all this we can conclude that real we see ourselves in the photo. But don’t worry if you don’t always like your pictures: maybe you just photographed at a bad moment, or you get stressed, or simply do not have time to involve the stomach.
