First of all, except for photos.
Sometimes I look in the mirror and feel that I look good, sometimes I feel ugly.
I have lived for 23 years and have not had a girlfriend. I was chased by a girl and refused.
Some girls said that I am good looking, but I don’t know if they are comforting me.
Wanting to know your true appearance is actually very simple: First, don’t look in the mirror. Second, don’t ask your acquaintances why you shouldn’t look in the mirror first. I believe that many people have a consensus, that is, they always feel that they look very beautiful in the mirrors of the office toilets and the mirrors of the clothing store, and they are also very textured. Then I went home and happily used the mirror on the table, or opened the selfie on the Apple phone, and immediately collapsed in self-confidence: How could it be so ugly! ! Here I tell you the answer to this metaphysical question. In fact, it is not that you look better in the mirror, but that you will look better in a well-lit mirror! Photographer Daniel Norton OnSet used a single light and an octagonal soft box with a grid to show the effect of light on the face value in his studio. Through a series of exposures, he constantly adjusted the angle of light illuminating the model’s face. , And finally got the above animation. Feel this light, do you miss the light of a clothing store? The effect of light sources in different directions on the face: Rembrandt-style lighting will make the portrait appear three-dimensional. Rembrandt-style lighting is a special lighting technique specially used for shooting portraits. When shooting, the shadow side of the subject’s face is facing the camera, and the light illuminates three quarters of the face. Butterfly light, generally when shooting portraits, will be more natural and the model will look more beautiful. The lighting method of the butterfly light is that the main light source is above the optical axis of the lens, that is, directly in front of the character’s face, projecting from the top to the bottom 45° on the character’s face, casting a shadow below the nose, resembling a butterfly shape , Let the character’s face bring a certain sense of hierarchy. Shooting in low light will look terrifying and weird, which is a taboo for photography. Therefore, if you want to take good-looking photos of yourself, you can try to turn off all the indoor lights, and then buy a warm light to fill up the light from different angles, and you can always take good photos. Second, why don’t you ask acquaintances? From a psychological point of view, many people will actively ignore or dare not look directly at the shortcomings and defects on their faces, and want to objectively know their true appearance, the best way Still consult with strangers, because acquaintances will also give untrue answers due to interpersonal concerns or halo effects. This is why there have been products such as “Truth Player “Score”” on a second-hand platform, usually quoting 0.1-10 yuan, boasting that they will give customers the most true and objective evaluation of their appearance. However, this method also has drawbacks: First, the professionalism of the truthful players cannot be verified, and the scoring mechanism is not supported by a scientific system. Second, everyone’s aesthetics are different, so their answer may not be the truth. So what better way to know if you look good or not? 1. If you want to know if your face is memorable or eye-catching, you can try to take photos of various groups of people around you, such as your graduation photo, to see if they can find you quickly. For example, in the following star group photo, who did you find first? (In order to avoid the halo effect, first exclude your idols) 2. You can directly trust a plastic surgeon like me who has aesthetic skills and has read countless people. I will give more objective and responsible answers based on my aesthetic qualities and work experience. . But human faces are dynamic, so when you ask me about your own face value, you must have dynamic pictures or videos of different expressions to get a more comprehensive and objective answer.
