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.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.
