Have you ever wondered about the difference you see in pictures versus what you see in the mirror? Trying to get the “perfect” selfie seems impossible, but your friends and family post pictures that look perfectly natural! Why is that? It has to do with the fact that cameras work a lot differently than our eyeballs, and for a bit of perspective on the issue, check out these photographs.

This is because our eyes are very similar to a 30 – 60 mm camera lens! And now, you can tell that he’s getting a bit larger.In case you didn’t catch it, compare the largest lens to the smallest! Do you see what a difference it makes? Those “ten pounds” might not exist, but it sure does seem like it!
