Does photography add weight to a person!?
I have noticed that sometimes photographs add dimension to your whole body and make people look twice the size they actually are!. There is also the saying, "the camera puts on weight"!. Or is the camera actually representing reality!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

depends on the angle!. one angle i look normal, another i look like a cow!. it just depends on the angle you take the picture!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
This question gets asked in YA about 3 times a day!.
If you take self-portraits, you are forcing the camera to use the widest angle of the lens (shortest focal length) and this inevitably causes distortion!. Professional photographers do NOT use wide-angle end in their lenses to take portraits, as explained, they produce unflattering images, all the time!.
The correct way to go in taking portraits is to use a longer focal length, around 85-100 mm!. In other words, use the longer end of the lens, or simply put, use the maximum zoom!. This forces you to maintain distance between the person and the camera, and then what you see in the pic is how you actually look!. Whether or not you like what you see in that image, is irrelevant as that is how you look for real!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
NO! The thing about photography is you have to know how to use light and pose a body!.!., you can take so many pouds off that way!
Video does add weight!. I don't know why, but still cameras do not!. They just record the light reflecting off your body!. If you look fat in a photo, that's how you look to everyone else, too!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
