    Left Eyed Photographers

    Just an interesting question.

    How many folk out there are left eyed like me? I have to sometimes contort mayself and the like as I view things with my left eye.

    I am sure you have all heard about this simple test to find out predominant eye, but here it is anyway

    Hold your thumb up and extend your arm full out.
    Look past (and actually through it) at some distant object with both eyes.
    Place your thumb over the object without closing an eye.
    Close your right eye, if your thumb stays over the object you are left eyed.

    I am right handed, but left eyed (and I kick a ball best with my left foot).

    Makes for interesting squinting as a lot of stuff is intended to be used with the right eye.

    What can I say, it's been a quiet day....

    That is what drove me to large format. Kept sticking my thumb from the frame advance lever in my right eye.

    Left eye, hand and foot. My right eye has also been stabbed many times with the film advance lever.

    Back over a couple of decades ago when I was selling, I would always ask customers if they were left eyed when they showed interest in a Nikon FM(2) or FE(2). If they were, I'd tell them it would cost $250 not to get poked in the right eye while metering, the price of a motor winder to keep the meter on with the manual advance lever tucked in.

    Actually, I wouldn't ask, since few people knew. I'd just hand them a camera and ask them to look through it so they'd do it without thinking about it. Left-eyed users of rangefinders are also keenly aware of the problem, and get no joy from built-in 1:1 finders.

    Well, I'm left-handed, definitely right-brained, and right-eyed! It's interesting what you find out in the course of new hobbies. I found out I was right eyed when I did some target shooting with bow & arrow! :o haha...don't worry....I'm relatively harmless.

    I shoot with my left eye, but I believe the eye doc told me the right was predominant. I'm just weird.
