    Right master eye, Right handed, Left eye to take photos. (something to do with the right side of the brain being more 'artistic'?)

    that is not weird. It means that your left eye is the master eye. The dominant eye. When you want to use your right eye without closing your left, your left will still dominate.

    Use third eye lah LOL. Frankly I prefer to use the right eye looking through the viewfinder but my left eye remains open. Gets me into a "zone" kinda thing. People who play sports would probably know what i mean. You brain becomes attuned to the subject and its immediate surroundings - everything else you're only sorta aware of. The only problem with this approach is when using a completely manual camera I sometimes forget to check the shutter speed.

    It's amazing what our brains are capable of - focusing, composition, determining best f-stop for the scene and shutter speed to stop action or to show speed. To focus on the scene I normally shoot in aperture priority mode.

    i recently switched from looking through the viewfinder using left eye to right eye. now i use mostly right eye cos i can see both the viewfinder and the actual scene. i'll switch to left eye if i want to see only the viewfinder cos i can't close my left eye and keep my right eye open.
    same as me! that means u cant wink! wow, ithought everyone could wink! (: now i know im not alone.

    I use my right eye, and i am right handed. I think it is more of a "flow", right hand right eye.

    FTW = For Teh Win (yes, literally spelt like that )

    For me, right hand, right eye. Also prefer to be able to keep both eyes open and left eye take in the whole scene while framing with right eye.
