Only a few lucky souls are born with photogenicity. Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) of the T.V. show How I Met Your Mother, is the best living example of photogenicity. Those who possess photogenicity will never look bad in a photo no matter what the circumstance. A study shows that certain names are linked to the photogenicity gene. The results show that males subjects named Daniel and female subjects named Madeline are most likely to have photogenicity (lucky ducks). Those born without photogenicity must succumb to popular exercises such as saying "cheese", or uncomfortable laugh before the picture is taken, in a futile attempt to look good in the photo. Individuals with photogenicity have the edge against other in their social lives because those who do not know them will instantly believe they were angels sent from heaven after briefly scanning their Facebook or other social websites involving photos of themselves.
Everybody thinks you are a hot piece of ass, you must have vast amounts of photogenicity.

Damn Neil Patrick Harris, due to your photogenicity, I can never take a bad photo of you. Why do you have to be so perfect? Marry me?

A genetical phenomenon residing within a host. The host may be a person, place† or thing. Usually photogenetic qualities reside in people, or animals. This gene has an astounding ability to enhance its host's attributes in an event of a "photo opportunity". Said host gains a charismatic boost during a photographic moment. As noted before, this is a genetical phenomenon, meaning it is not directly passed down from one parent or the other; rather it is indirectly passed down from a member higher up the family tree. (usually several generations)

†In the case of a photogenic place, it is usually somewhere calm and peaceful; somewhere that when people see it, they are (more often than not) subconsciously pleased with the view. If in such a case that the person is consciously pleased with a view of the place, such place must be regarded as sacred; especially if viewed as such by a vast selection of people.
