Well, actually I set the webcam up like that because I was using it to video chat with him while he's out of town. When in video chat, I can see him and myself (or the kids can see themselves). The typical settings weird me out... I guess because I'm so used to looking at myself in a mirror. When the kids are video chatting they tend to get too absorbed in what they look like (he's on a slow connection so he freezes up, they are going to stare at themselves instead of him) instead of talking and I have found that the mirror image helps. I was considering switching it for the video so that I didn't look "backwards"... but I found that while I was doing the video being able to see myself as a mirror image actually helped with not having to stare at the neck so much as I could see it in the camera playing on my computer screen.
Mind you, when I say I'm used to seeing myself in a mirror image that doesn't mean I stare at myself all day long in the mirror... but I kind of do. I'm a cosmetologist and I generally am standing behind a person doing their hair while we are both facing the mirror. I use the mirror as a tool and can work as well looking through a mirror as I can straight on. Putting that image in the standard form and trying to look at it while video taping is "foreign" to me.
I didn't mean to make myself look left handed
When I was young asking a million questions my dad would say to me, "Curiosity killed the cat" ... and as a teenager I began to reply to him, "but satisfaction brought him back!"
