Why Do We Look So Differently In Photos Than In Mirrors?
3. Light Balance
When you look into a mirror, it doesn’t matter if it’s cloudy or sunny outside. Your seemingly magical brain knows how to filter the light so that you see yourself the same way you are used to. Meanwhile, a camera will capture and show lightning as it really is, which often leads to different shadows and shapes. When you look into the mirror, light makes absolutely no difference because your brain allows you to see yourself as you know you are.
