In this day and age, it's super easy to record moments from your everyday life. Anywhere you look and turn, people have camera phones ready to capture those rare and random images. But there are just days when you can't deal with having your photo taken—maybe when you just arrived at your barkada's fave cafeteria and you feel gross after commuting, or it's that time of the month when you just feel ugly (you aren't, but hormones).

Thanks to music sensation Taylor Swift we got a few ways on dealing with people who just want to take your photos when you're not really into having one—ahem, friends, stop taking candid shots and posting them online, puh-lease. We rounded a few tips and tricks from T-Swizzle below in hopes of helping you deal with this problem.
