    Do you see with your eyes or with your brain?

    Whatever your answer is to the question on the title, are you sure? After you watch the next video, please tell me how you see color?

    Peter, that is amazing video. It reinforces my question even more. The prism experiments is the perfect way to explain why we as LF photographers get used to see the image inverted on the ground glass. At the beginning is hard, but intuitively we get it later on.

    I thought the same thing when I saw it. Our sensory experience, which is experience of something called the perceptual model, is a creation of our brains. It doesn't exist out there independent of us. Basically, Kant was right.

    That explains why two photographers taken the "same" picture from the same place get different results. Our realities are different.

    One thing all my cameras have in common is they don't really photograph reality.

    Perhaps it's reality that is the same, and its our individual perception of that reality that differs.

    Our realities are made up by our brain. Since the camera does not capture our reality, it captures what is reflected onto them, we get some surprises many times. We expect the camera to capture our realities, and they don't do it.

    The film's got it "right". Our brain gets it differently.

    Ain't no "perhaps" about it. Reality is. Perceptions differ.
