How to shoot in full manual mode
Dec 22, 2010

I have a D200 and D700 and I'm "almost" happy with my the way I've been shooting but I can see that shooting in aperture mode is limiting. I want to start shooting in full manual mode to get the most out of the camera. Now please be kind, how is the best way to start learning how to do this all the time?

You may say just start shooting but to be honest I just can't think that fast. Do you look at what you want to take an image of and say to yourself.... F8 and then look at the cross hairs of the camera and try to get it in the center? Isn't that the same as shooting in aperture mode at F8? I'm just a wanta be trying to learn so please be kind.

Thanks in advance
