I'm not quite sure that this is a dictionary entry, since it does (tentatively at least) try to explain why some are more photogenic than others.
A photograph of a person widely known for being photogenic, and must be sourced and have a neutral pov. I chose Jolie because she is a popular sex symbol in women, and also because some user (who probably has yet to see her in rl) keeps adding her image in the Physical attractiveness and Sex symbol articles. - User:Carie
- Good point. I am messaging the owner of this photo, i cant think of any other photo except this guy. Unfortunately it is copyrighted, so i am looking for chance to relicense to CC or something.
- Also, to fit in this page, you need to show the photogenic behavior, to distinguish it from plain aesthetic. The guy was clearly taken a shot while he was running, so it shows his photogenic intent perfectly. --Mylittleanon (talk) 17:59, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
rm uncited claim
I removed the following claim from the article, because it is uncited (and dubious): "This phenomenon is caused by the three dimensional and two dimensional polarizing effect and could explain why a person looks "better" in two dimensions than in three or vice versa."--Srleffler 07:01, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
Is attractive being confused with photogenic?
Attractive has the quality of causing the attention to be riveted on the attractive person. That is almost by definition. But photogenic is a term that tries to separate out another quality. Charismatic suggests photogenic, and that is noted in the article. But I think there is too much preoccupation with "attractive" in the article which isn't the heart and soul of photogenic. Attractive people can be lacking in the quality of being photogenic, I think. Therefore the preoccupation with attractiveness in the article seems to be misleading.
I also don't think photogenic is necessarily even related to photography. I think a person can be said to be photogenic based the attention they garner simply by people feeling an irresistible urge to look at them. Bus stop (talk) 02:23, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
Cheryl Cole claim irrelevant?
"Cheryl Cole is named the most photogenic woman ever according to a new poll by 4000 British women. A spokesperson for Nikon, who commissioned the study to promote their new D300 camera, said: "Cheryl Cole was a clear winner and is loved by the nation for her looks, dress sense and friendly nature."
This doesn't belong in the article, considering no-one outside of UK even knows who this person is! It is debateable and not encycolpedic material! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 07:19, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
Ridiculously photogenic guy
Although the image might be ideal for this page, its copyright status is undetermined. Know Your Meme is not the copyright holder, so the rationale for the image is incorrect. Until that's sorted out, Wikipedia can't have it in the article. ... discospinster talk 02:00, 27 April 2012 (UTC)
- Can't we use it anyway? Seems to me like no one owns the rights, so surely we can use it anyway? From my understanding of copyright law, if no one defends their work, then it enters the public domain doesn't it? Primary Antagonist (talk) 23:05, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
