I finally started shooting in manual. Three years, and I'm just now starting. Crazy.
WHY DID IT TAKE ME SO LONG TO SWITCH?!?
Seriously, it was so incredibly simple. The results are pretty amazing too. I still have a lot to learn, and my pictures are far from perfect, but I have only been using manual mode for a couple days now. I love how much control I have over everything!!! I even taught Cait how to use in less than five minutes.
Yes, I still have blurry pictures here and there, but I was taking pictures of Audrey, and let me tell you, that kid is ball of energy.
