The Eyes Have It


This photographer is doing what I do – she, like me, is left-eyed.

Did you know we are all left- or right eyed, and left- or right-eared, just like we are left- or right-handed?

For photographers this means we either have to close our left eye, if we use our right eye to look through the viewfinder, or we use our left eye in which case the right eye is behind the camera (and our nose is against the LCD screen).

It’s not a big deal, but it pays to realize what we are. Next time you pick up your camera and your phone, observe which eye (and ear) is dominant.
