I've realized recently that I don't take pictures as well as I used to. Not that I ever have really. I'm not the most photogenic person, but more and more recently I'm finding that pictures of me are just terrible, and it takes a lot of work ( and multiple snaps) to get a good one.
Is it age? How old are you normally when your looks stop improving and start going down hill? When fatigue permanently paves bags and lines on your formerly youthful refreshed face?
Or is it the cursed few extra baby weight pounds? Those stupid last ones that won't come off. The ones that everyone says your are imagining, but you know they are there. Those same ones that make you feel like you feel uncomfortable in your favorite pre baby jeans.
Or, is it the camera?
I choose the latter.
With my 4 or 5 mega pixel camera, flaws were not seen so easily. They were masked by the quality of the picture.
Now, when they are coming out with these 10+ mega pixel cameras there is no place to hide. Does anyone really need to be seen in 10 mega pixels? Or want to for that matter? I surely do not. It's practically like a magnifying glass that enlarges all your flaws to be captured in time forever.
I'm all for new technology, but it seems as the quality of cameras progress, my quality of pictures digresses. The two are directly linked. I fear for the 30 mega pixel cameras of the future!
Waiting for James to arrive!
