Manual Mode - Giovanni Arroyo Photography Lake in the Hills
For my birthday I got a new t-shirt. It shares my love of manual mode.

Now before you think this is a critique, let me say this you need to learn your modes. Yes you have heard me state this a ton, but you need to understand your camera. You need to know when to use Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, and Manual. Yes, you can take good photos using an automatic mode like Program, but to make great photos, you need to have an understanding of the other modes. Learn when to select and use the different modes.

I personally shoot in manual mode most of the time. This is because I like being in control and understand how the different settings effect a photo.

All being said I like the shirt.
