So here I am watching something on E - well, it's on and I'm not paying attention - but I heard one of the reality show people say, "You could be the most beautiful girl in the world, but if you're not photogenic, you won't make the cut." Well, something along those lines. And it reminded me of an encounter I had a few years ago in Atlanta. I'd gone out for a friend's birthday party, and there was a round of introductions, which then led to taking photos. I took a picture with this one guy, and showed him the photo on my phone, and he goes, "Wow, you're so photogenic!" I didn't really think much of the statement, and thanked him for the compliment.
At a later date, I mentioned the meeting to a friend, and she went, "Ouch! For real?!" I asked why she had that reaction, and she said something like if someone says you're photogenic, they're saying that you take nice pictures, but aren't necessarily good-looking or pretty.
Do you agree?
And then answer me this... can a pretty person NOT be photogenic? Actually, yes.
