Quote: 7th son of a 7th son as well?
No, the second son of a second son. Which sounds very similar if you're slightly inebriated.
left for me as well! Trouble is you tend to breathe all over the camera as well
im left handed, use my right eye for camera.
left ear for phone
left hand for writing
right hand golf, cricket, baseball, etc...
left hand for chainsaw and scissors (grrrrrrr...)
hee hee, ads :o)
I'm right-handed and use my right eye (it's much stronger than my left).
I'm also right-footed playing football but bat left-handed (cricket) and I would need left-handed golf clubs if I played.
I take bottle/jar tops of with my left hand and pull the string of a bow with my left but I'd hold a shot-gun/rifle on my right shoulder.
I do however clap with both hands
Right eye, left handed (That doesn't say a lot though, as I play most sport right handed e.g. Golf). Usually keep my left eye open (Can't keep it closed for long, causes strain in it and I look weird, lol.
Another left eye, right handed... mmmmm two left eyes! Right eye sometimes open, sometimes shut.
Look round over left shoulder when on my bike.
Golf, football with right hand/foot.
Scratch with left hand. (if right hand itchy!)
I'm almost blind in my right eye so its left for me, though looking at some of my pics you would think I used my right eye.
But I am pretty well ambidexterous (can write with both hands, in cricket I bat lefthanded and bowl righthanded, never have to play a backhand on the tennis/squash court). I would love a camera with the shutter button on the left, as I seem to be far more pressure sensitive with my left hand (tend to push a bit hard with right = occasional camera shake). Shoot with right eye as well.
I was reading some amazing stuff they are doing to try to help epileptics the other day. When there are no other options, it is possible to sever the bridge between the two halves of the brain. Problem is that each half interprets the signals from the opposite eye, and the speech centre is located in the left side (this is nearly always true for right handed people - but lefty's often have a language centre in both halves). Basically, what they found is that people who had this operation were then in capable of describing anything they could see in their right peripheral vision. They could see it, but could interpret what it was. For example, nude pictures of men or women were held up and the subject often blushed or became embarrased - but couldn't say why!
My former tutor was a Prof in Neurophysiology and used to love telling his tutees about all this stuff!
I don't use any now and the photo's are better!
(joking - I'm left)
i use my left when the lights low, and i really have to brace the camera against my shoulder, but use the right the rest of the time.
Both eyes when subjects moving about.
Can I be a pita Both, but prefer right, with left open.
Brown eye (left)looks through viewfinder.
Blue eye (right) usually closed.
Now - that is really odd.
Well I used to use my left for taking photographs but forllowing a golfing accident and the subsequent loss of sight in the left eye, I changed to the right and after a few days, no problem.(Plus the sun doesn't get in the left while using the right.......so some good came out of it!)
I dont open any of mine
