Manual mode vs apeture or shutter prority
Sep 2, 2012

I get the impression from the forums that you aren't a real photographer if you don't use manual mode with your DSLR. I find it quicker to get the same exposure I would reach in manual mode by using aperture or shutter priority. My objective, usually, is to fill the histogram with no over exposure. I do want to take full advantage of manual mode, however. Does anyone have advise on using manual mode or do I just need to go back and read Bryan Peterson's book on exposure again or wait until I get more experience.
