when someone says "i had a light camera left" (or right) is that from the photographer's or subject matter's perspective?

i.e. if im standing behind the camera looking at my subject and i point to my left, is that camera left? from the subject's perspective it would be to their right, and right of the camera...

my cold addled brain is not focusing too well this morning so i am coming up with all sort of nonsense questions...

Camera is the position so camera right is right of the camera.

In about four seconds I found the answer for you using Google.

It is much faster than starting a thread on a forum and then waiting for people to respond. . I mean, if you can find something out in a second or four, why not just do it that way?

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
