"why do you look like you're sad in photos a lot?"
"trauma and crushing mental health problems"

if you're gonna ask idk what you're expecting, pal

@sophia i'm always surprised that people think i look happy in my photos because that's rarely the feeling i was experiencing while the photo was being taken. apparently they cannot see the true emotion in my eyes while my mouth contorts into a fake smile


@ThatWallflower I'm really good at faking happiness in photos but I'm getting a lot more comfortable about not even trying anymore. Unsurprisingly 'smile more' and questions as to why I'm not smiling have become pretty commonplace.
People are hard to read in photos. Most people don't read the intended emotion well unless it's made extremely clear with additional aesthetics or outside suggestion

@sophia representing different moods in photography makes sense if it's art, which has a broader emotional scope than a quick selfie
