    I have rarely to meet the photo of me that is not whack! I simply am NOT photogenic (the oddball in my highly photogenic fam!). I didn't really think about it until I saw this magazine news story on 2 girls who killed somebody. I noticed that the blond chica was cute, but thought nothing of it until the FEMALE reporter said, very earnest and urgently, that the pictures of her did NOT do her justice. Said the girl was absolutely beautiful!

    Another sista not photogenic (get ready to be shocked!): Gabrielle Union. Kid ya not. I read an news story article about her in the papers. Reporter (another female - and I give the gender because everyone knows women are much harder on other women than men.... oh, plus this reporter was a WHITE female)... reporter said that she was stunned at how beautiful Gabrielle Union is! Again, said that Union is NOT photogenic! Her impression was backed up by 2 of my nieces who met her signing autographs at a college dealey. I told them what the reporter said about her and they AGREED. Said that Union's beauty is NEVER captured on film.

    So, what about U? Photogenic or not?

    it is not the subject it is the photographer. i can make any body look good.
    black actresses are mostly photographed by guys who do not like them and/or do not understand them.

    When I said pictures of Gabrielle Union, I meant FILM. Everyone says she looks a hecka lot better in person than on celluloid. As for still pix, I pretty such agree with you. The best pix I ever took were when I went to a professional.
