Beginners fear it. Seasoned photographers adore it. Everyone else doesn't know what it means.
Those who shoot Full Manual on their camera - film or digital - know its power. To us, there's no other "mode" on the camera. Manual mode is the camera.
Once you've gone from Full Auto (gasp!) to Aperture Priority, to battling the last boss in the final level of Full Manual in this videogame of life, you'll never go back.
Being able to control all aspects of an exposure - your shutter speed, your aperture, your ISO - that's what makes you a photographer. It takes years to obtain this level of mastery of the tools of the trade, but rewards you with a lifetime of being able to get the shot you want - every single time.
Tell the world how you shoot. And how they should shoot too.
