    Default Left Hand vs Right Hand.

    Hi all,

    I wanted to find out if people who are left handed shoot better pictures than people who are right handed. I want to know what's the best way to take pictures that make people go WOW.

    Thank you.

    yalor ...I was thinking the same thing. Sound like someone "chiak salah yug" ( eat wrong medicine) heheheh....

    If in the end you found out that left handed takes better pictures then what you going to do? Chang your ability by unlearning and relearning how to use your left hand like your right hand? heheheheheheh

    Beside asking left or right hand.. you must also factor in whether you are using left or right eye to compose, whether you are using left or right leg to support yourself, whether you are using your left or right nostril to breath and whether your left or right balls is bigger.

    Please, you're not being constructive. I'm very anal, I don't like it when people reply to my thread and are not being constructive.

    Thank you kind sir for your extremely constructive reply.

    How about my left and right ears? Do they come into play as well? Which finger do you use to depress the shutter? How much force do you depress it with? I'm afraid if I press too hard I might damage my camera.

    And seeing how you have assessed the situation before, which ball for you is bigger? Your left or right ball?

    Well...maybe the brand owners did a test survey years ago and did find out that left handed folks are bad photographers..that is why they only have right handed camera equipments! So I guess we have finally come to a confirmed conclusion heheh

    i once read a very touching article on disabled people who loved photography.

    there was this particularly touching segment on this guy who had trouble holding the camera due to muscular dystrophy.. yet he shot something much better than the typical gwc. i think his story should be publicised everywhere so that people might wake up their idea.
