It depends. If I'm shooting a camera with a battery grip, I rotate counter-clockwise. If it doesn't have a battery grip, it goes clockwise

I go both ways and use both eyes. I'm all kinds of special!

I just always figured it was because I'm ambidextrous. My left hand is dominant but I do pretty much everything with both.

Who are these students and why are they calling me teacher?

Interesting! So far 11 rotate counter clockwise and 5 rotate clockwise. The people who shoot both ways I counted one for each.

I'm left-handed and use my right eye, most of the time, but after reading this thread I think I'm going to change. I also wear glasses which lead to an entirely different set of issues. I'm right eyed dominant, so I have to close my left eye whenever I shoot, but don't have too if I use my left eye. As far as comfort both ways feel fine to me. The problem I have is last time I went got my eyes examined (2 years ago) I had a stigmatism, right eye, for the first time. I've also had a dry eye issue with my right eye this winter, so I think I trust my left eye more.

I generally go CW, DH goes CCW. Neither of us are left handed. When using a tripod I go CCW because that is the way ReallyRightStuff L brackets are made.

I usually go clockwise. That's because my normal horizontal grip is to cradle the body/lens with my left hand and use my right on the grip/shutter release. I feel that rotating it clockwise for portrait shots lets me support the camera from below (cradle) with my right hand, allowing it to be stable. Holding the camera from above would require a stronger grip and higher potential for shake.

Clockwise. My hands are fairly unsteady and it is far more stable for me to tuck my hand in under my chin and pull my elbow in tight, snug against my chest.
