I have been on holiday which for me means i only have time for improving three things:
3. See number 1.
Most books and articles online have fully explained that it is better one stays on top of the "shooting" situation so I have been giving that a try with the recommended manual mode but the manual mode comes with some problems which is that:
a. After getting the correct combination(a balanced exposure meter) of f/stop, shutter speed and iso, few seconds before the actual shot, everything just fluctuates and i'm either under or overexposed.
b. I currently do not own a tripod so a slow shutter speed is a big no at the moment but many times i choose an aperture, only a really slow shutter speed satisfies my "Sir Camera".
ISO immediately comes to mind but then, while cranking it up may help with a faster shutter speed....how about the little devil called 'noise'?
All the above have actually made the "P" mode my favorite and as a matter of fact only viable option, except Auto which I am learning to drop(starting to feel like a pro ).
So do you shoot manual a lot and what is the trick or your method for getting it right without spending too much time fiddling with the camera(mostly at an event).
I use a Canon 1000d, 18-55mm kit lens and 70-300mm Sigma f4-5.6.
I'll be waiting to hear from you.
