How is that when some people look at pictures of themselves (within a short time frame too), they look completely different in each?
Someone had recently asked a question about physical reality being an illusion. Well think how that question would really hit home to someone like who experiences this!
Anyway, is this different energy coming through? Why do some people have more consistent pictures effortlessly? Is there more to it based on state of mind as to when the picture was taken?
Were you yourself when both pictures were taken?
Do you remember posing for both pictures?
You may have been distracted or been in a different emotional state between the two moments.
I attended a funeral recently and I could barely recognize the living family members, because the emotional grief had changed their facial appearance so much.
I think our state of mind does cause minute changes to our appearance.
You question, however is quite personal in nature that I have to be careful in how I answer it.
If you want a wider and less restrained response to these type of questions you may want to ask them in a second person or third person perspective.
When you are seeing a person live or in video, you are seeing them as they move through various "expressions." As they do so, your mind assembles an image of that person based on their continuous expressions of movement and behavior.
When you see a still picture of someone, you see a frozen time slice of that person, a moment where that person is fixed in a particular expression. Your mind then assembles an image of that person based solely on that specific expression.
As people move through these expressions, there are moments where the expression is particularly captivating or photogenic. It is these moments that a photographer attempts to capture. Some photographers capture these moments by taking many, many pictures of a person, and keeping the best ones. Other photographers have a knack for catching subjects in these ideal expressions.
The best photographers know how to coach their subjects to produce natural, expressive poses, and then snap the picture at just the right moment.
Have a look at this video, where a man named Noah took a photo of himself every day for six years, and then assembled the photos into a video montage. Noah manages to make his expression virtually identical in every photo, so while everything changes around him (including his hair), he basically looks the same in every photo.
In fact, if you watch closely, you can actually see him age as the video progresses.
