    what eye do you use ? and is your other eye open or closed?
    - i shoot with my left eye and my right is sometimes open and sometimes squinting........just curious.......thanks for replies
    :!: edit my dad had complained one day that some of his equipment was right eye biased- ie f5 (your nose hits the controls!)(big nose!!) so i asked why did he start using his left eye and not the right,,,,,,,he just told me he was legally blind in that eye :scratch:

    I've never really thought about it.

    But, it turns out I use my right eye and usually tend to have my left eye open most of the time.

    Interesting question though...I'd like to hear how this varies from person to person.

    I use my left eye and my right is usually open when I have to watch people. I'm also left handed and being that the left hand is controlled by the right side of the brain ........... I guess that makes me right in the head. Steve

    I do close the right eye to focus though.

    I'm left handed for writing and thats about all. I use right for throwing and catching and holdig the main weight of the camera and cutting with scissors.

    For looking through the camera i use my right eye with my left eye closed. Interesting seeing how everyone does it

    Both actually. Well, why look at the lcd with just one eye? :lol:

    Okay, with a viewfinder I'm right-eyed, unless it's a fast moving subject when I'm just as likely to keep both eyes open until right before I trip the shutter. Helps me track moving objects better. Or at least it used to, I haven't tried it lately. :)

    I use my right eye and close my left. An instructor in a photography class I took said that you should keep both eyes open, but I just can't get use to doing that. :wink:

    for me it depends on the angle I have to shoot. Sometimes if I'm doing ultra closeups, I will have to switch eyes to get just the right angle I'm looking for. Most times though I shoot with my right eye in the viewfinder and left eye closed. For me, keeping both eyes open is a needless distraction, although when shooting sports it is certainly a good idea!!! ;-)
