Fuji X series camera are well known for their amazing Auto capabilities. Auto ISO, Auto aperture, Auto shutter, Auto dynamic range, they’re all done so well.
But I have become lazy, relying on these a bit too much for my liking. I sometimes find myself rushing a scene and not thinking about what I am taking knowing I can fix most exposure blips in Lightroom. Well no more!
After reading the awesome blog post by Mark Carey about shooting in manual and other street photography tips I decided that I need to up my manual skills. I have been thrown off by odd lighting situations fooling my camera and need to become the master of those situations.
Today was my first outing in M. There’s nothing fantastic on show but I have already felt the freedom it gives me. The first couple of weeks are going to be tough but I think I will be a better photographer in the end.
None of the photos here have had an exposure adjustment in Lightroom.
