Weekly challenge - Manual vs...
Do you ever use Auto mode on your camera? I don't. I pretty much shoot in full Manual at least 80% of the time. The other 20% I'm either using Auto ISO, Aperture priority or Shutter priority.
I admired a photo the other day in a Facebook photo sharing group and asked for the settings and was surprised to get an answer that they "just use Auto" all the time! What????!!!!??? Did they get lucky? Am I missing out on using my camera's technology to it's fullest? Are there some circumstances when Full Auto is a good option?
For this week's challenge, let's see what Auto mode on our cameras can really do. Take a photo in your usual style (M, A, S, P mode) and then put your camera on full auto and take another. Let's see how the camera's brain does in figuring out the shot. Post both with your settings and the Auto settings. If you have any fancy modes like "nighttime" or "macro" or "portrait" and you want to use those, I would consider those in the Auto category. I'm going to aim to shoot some different types of photos - portrait, macro, action, landscape etc.
