Could changing shooting eyes could improve your photography?
It depends on whether you are an Island or a Wave?
The Island is solid, permanent, always there, consistent, never-changing.
The Wave changes form every few seconds; it swells, rises, surges, breaks and accelerates as it cascades on the shore.
The Island may be reassuring to look at, but the Wave mesmerises.
Or maybe you're the Spinnaker rather than the Keel?
The Spinnaker - voluminous, bold, colourful, billowing in the breeze; a powerful, driving force.
The keel is rarely seen, hidden, unnoticed, a steadying influence, keeping the yacht upright, on-course.

However, when two Keels get together, they're as safe as houses. They never capsize or break through waves. Two Keels never go anywhere. They sit there like a barge in the Thames with barnacles growing on their bottoms.
So, whats. this all about?
Well yesterday I had a drink with one of Australia's most creative, left-field photographers, Johannes Reinhart. Johannes is creative, inspirational and 'oh so left-field'. You never know what's coming next but you are looking forward to it.

He told me one of his secret techniques was to shoot an image with his right eye. Then, to re-shoot the same simple using his left eye.
So simple, so daring.
So not boring.
