Left Brain and Right Brain

When taking a photo very interesting things happen in your brain. Your left brain (or hemisphere) tries to operate the digital camera. You right hemisphere tries to make a pretty composition. The left hemisphere operates serially, linearly and methodically, is about past and future and thinks in language. The right hemisphere is a parallel processor, thinks about the present, the right here and know, and in pictures.

To get a better understanding of the differences between the left and the right hemisphere, please take a look at the video of dr. Jill Bolte Taylor. She is a neuroanatomist and suffered a stroke in the left hemisphere of her brain. She studied what happened with her brain during her eight year recovery.
