Personally, I can't say I've looked too much into photography on a sex basis... I've noticed more men in it, but have also noticed off hand that a lot of women don't really spend as long over a life in the industry. more men are old in it, and more women are young in it. Different perspectives....


As for the door debate, I offer this.

I've always thought it a reasonable proposition that women are just as capable as men in left brain activities, although the percentages may be different and cultural influences no doubt contribute to this.[a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=139577\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a]

Photography is a whole brain activity, which is why women and men enjoy it.  Photography requires artistic and technical skills, and frequently requires people skills (less so for landscapes).  In any case, left-brain and right-brain differences and attributes are grossly exaggerated by the media and are almost always a waste of time to consider.

I think this thread below (one of only a few though) illustrates why sometimes I don't post...one never knows where the thread will meander when male egos are involved.

For me increased family committments and developing technological expertise is the limiting factor.

Everything is exaggerated in the media to make it interesting and readable.

However, the left/right brain divide is a real phenomenon and hardly a waste of time to consider. There are lots of interesting, although tragic, examples of how peoples' perceptions are altered when one side of the brain is damaged.

But I agree that photography can be a whole brain activity, perhaps should be a whole brain activity. However, the continual fascination with and argumentation about camera performance and image resolution seems to be primarily a male activity on forums like this, and I would say left-brain oriented.

I donīt know if the tech preoccupation is more prevalent with "advanced" amateurs than with professionals, but most of the pros I knew when I was still very busy didnīt talk much about technique or anything much else of that ilk; the chat - if ever we trusted one another enough to exchange more than guarded words - was about clients, who wasnīt paying well or quickly, who messed you about etc.

Guess time was too expensive to spend talking tech - also, there wasnīt much internet about to distract one...

Is a client paying well or quickly?...... Yes, I guess that could be left brain activity   .
