ways in which brains are dumb: wore a new dress for the first time today. look in the mirror: "hey this looks good." take a picture: "ugh, this looks awful." >.>

That's how I feel about my face. Mirror is fine; camera is WTF?

Um...because it isn't the exact same thing. Camera focal lengths change perspective, if only slightly.
Camera : body :: Tape recorder : voice Just. Don't. Do. It.
I have developed a "short focus" utilitarian relationship with mirrors. I avoid mirrors, unless I HAVE to look at one, and when I do, I focus only on the part of me that is the reason why I am looking into it. No "total picture" viewing for me. The last time I looked into a mirror was probably months ago, and only because I thought I had something in my eye.
, I believe this is not only a focal length. Gestures, for example, may add a lot to your charm and a static picture fails to preserve the whole impression
