Left or right eye?

This is a super fun topic. I use my right eye. But yeah, I had to pick up my camera for this as well. My wife uses left and I told her, going by a previous post, that she was weird. Uh-oh!!

I close my left eye and view with my right. In shooting they call it your dominant eye, apparently Smile

Strange, but you lot that are left dominant do you feel more comfortable posing subjects facing left. I am right eye dominant and nothing posed to the left looks right to me shot in a studio for 9 years and still feels wierd.......

since eyes have a different colour rendition, you might think you need an 81a filter when viewing the scene with the right eye but it looks ok with the left, so what to do? also if your viewing eye is getting blurry (old age) does the lens take care of everything or do you need to compensate, do you need to shoot with glasses or does the lens take the place of glasses?

A lefty eyed right handed one! Someone once said it may be a very mild form of dyslexia but don't really subscribe to that.

On a similar note, are all shutter release buttons made for right handed people ?
