Why is it
that I can fire my pistol at the range and clearly see the fireball and the target, when most people squeeze their eyes shut,

and yet,

nearly every time I have someone shoot my picture with a flash, I have my eyes supidly half closed in a blink?

At least part of the answer comes from internal versus external stimulus. When you, an experienced shooter, are pressing the trigger, your entire being is anticipating and getting prepared for the event. When someone else is pressing the trigger, even when you know that it is going to take place right now, there's a vital element of neural conditioning missing.

Oh dear, I should have snapped a few of each...
