Until recently, this is something I rarely thought about. But recently I began experimenting a little.

So I began to wonder which eye most other photographers shoot with.

Also I am interested in learning any thoughts others may have on this.

Afterthought following Photozack81's response: Just noticed that i should have asked a third option; i.e. "Both eyes". But do not now see how to edit the top poll section. Thank you

I shoot my camera much like shooting a gun. Right handed, right eyed. Both eyes open so as to see the target and its surroundings better.

Left handed, left eyed. I actually would prefer to use my right eye, as I know people who shoot with both eyes open to see the their surroundings and swear by it.... And my nose always scrunches up on the back of the camera when looking through the finder. But, I can manually focus faster with my left...

Good question, I sometimes think about that too.

Left eye; right one used to survey the surroundings from time to time.
I thought that everyone was like that.

This is the first time I've seen a poll on left vs. right eye, but it's not the first time it's come up.

P.S. I'm right-handed, left-eyed. I kick right-footed and shoot hockey left-handed, just like the world's best player, Sid the Kid.

This was my preferred modus operandi too though depending on the subject I might close my left eye. Unfortunately a retinal condiition means I am having to learn to use my left eye instead. For static subjects I find this mildly inconvenient - most cameras seem to be designed for right eye, right hand use. For BIF I find subject acquisition much slower - with my dominant right eye I could bring the camera up to my eye and be more or less on target from the start. Now I have hunt for it and find single point AF ( v D9, D25 or D72) harder than before.

Right handed (although ambidextrous), left-footed, left eye shooting, but will use the right eye as well.

Left-handed (curse you right-hand dominant world!) but I shoot with both eyes. (Cameras and guns.)

Usually prefer right eye, so I can keep left eye open observing what's going on. Especially when shooting kids.

Right handed, right eye shooter. If I'm shooting around 70mm then I'll have both eyes open as the two views blend together for me. Otherwise, I find the difference in view distracting and just shoot with one eye through the viewfinder.

Also, I prefer the viewfinder in the middle of the camera body. The corner viewfinders drive me crazy.

First you need to work out if you are left or right eye dominant. Here is a neat trick to find out whether you are right or left eye dominant:

I'm right-eye dominant.


For most stuff, I leave both eyes open.

Right handed, left eye, goofy footer on boards, left leg pivot leg for balance in martial arts, chew food on left side of mouth, sip whisky with left hand while running tv remote with right. Ambidextrous while tumbling downhill.

It feels good to open up like this......
