I was all in at the head of this article. I use my dslr like he describes his film experience. I get a baseline exposure and then bracket as needed. No need to infinite focus tho, since autofocus is fast. He lost me at, set p mode and shoot tho.

A really recognised pro in my area calls "P for Professional".  I don't use it but I tried it out on my camera.  I shoot more the slow stuff with film and tripod you see ...

In P mode, you scroll one dial on my Nikon and it goes thru the different combinations, if you scroll the other dial it factors in exposure compensation.  It may not be suitable for long exposure landscapes etc.  with filters and night photography or you really high shutter speed.  But if it is your walk about photography, pictures of people it can be a bit easier ... Today's age the meter is pretty accurate but in saying that we aren't photographing black and white cats ..
