Photography Experiment

Hi Photosoc-ers!

I’m conducting an original experiment looking at what direction of light we prefer light to come in from in portraits. I’m also comparing the results of people who read from left to right (English) with those who read from right to left (Arabic) to see if there is a difference.

I cant give away too much as I don’t want to influence the results but I’ve put a quick image comparison survey on my website. It takes less than 2 minutes to complete and doesn’t require giving away any personal data.

Please could you help me out and take part in my experiment – the address is

I appreciate your help so much and as soon as I have collected the data, I will post the results to let you all know if we find anything interesting.

Again, the address is

Thank you!

p.s. if you happen to have any relatives who read Arabic as their primary language, it would be very helpful if you could pass on the url!
