    For you, I suggest to use P mode and forget about speed/aperture.

    I'm very sure that FM2 does not have P mode or Auto mode.

    There is no fix aperture or shutter speed to use. It all depends on what you want to achieve. I can set easily set it to f/22, 30s if I want to maximise DOF. Or I can use f/2.8 to isolate a subject. So don't be so anal about finding an optimum aperture/shutter speed. Rather just go out and shoot more, experiment and have fun.

    FM2 is a manual film camera...no P or Auto

    but being a manual camera...would this be harder?

    why should be harder?

    there is not much buttons or dials need to take care, only aperture ring and shutter speed dial.

    simple and sweet.

    some places are brighter, some place are dimmer, how would one know the exact exposure without being there?

    don't your camera has a exposure meter?

    Yep, every situation is different. What works for me may not work for others.

    Since the FM2 has a light meter, then TS should use that to get a feel of the exposure needed.
