Do You Have a "Good Side"?

Do You Have a "Good Side"?

I'm not talking about "good side" in terms of whether you're a saint or a sinner. I'm going to just assume that most of us are little angels when it comes down to it. Instead, I'm talking snapshots. Recently, another member of Team Bella and I had a mini photo session in which we agreed that we each have a more flattering angle. Celebrities are notorious for asking to be photographed from their own good sides, and how about you? Are you lucky enough to possess photogenic qualities without having to stretch your head every which way, or do you have to work at it a bit to get it right?

I have never noticed one side that looks better on me than another in photos - they both look the same to me.

I always tilt my head towards one direction, but I feel like I look better straight on. I need to work on it. haha. Oh, and I HATE taking pictures from below because I just look stupid, and I don't think its a flattering angle on anyone.

I like the right side of my face better when I look in the mirror, mainly b/c its more pronounced. Although my face is very symmetrical, I can tell slightly that the right side is bigger, as with the rest of my body. Its easier for me to turn my head to the left and pose than it is for me to turn my head to the right and pose. They may be why I'm more partial to the right rather than left as well.

My backside is my good side, LOL. As far as my face goes, I'm bilaterally unphotogenic.

I think it's my left side. I'm not sure though. I probably should check.

Everyone says my face is very symmetrical. I think both of my sides are equally good. :)

Luckily I'm pretty symetrical and look the same photographed from any side, irrespective of my hair cut/style; however, I'm always happy to wait for others to pose using their 'good' side because I've seen the difference it can make

A photographer once said "let's get your good side". I was 11 years old. All I kept thinking was "I have a bad side". If I can get out of having my picture taken - I do. I hate it.

I do but mine is dependent upon my hair. I have side-swept bangs so I prefer to be photographed on the side the my bangs are on, otherwise my monstrous forehead is the main event when photographed on the non-bang side. ha!

I don't know. I've never noticed. I don't think so. All my sides and angles look fine.
