Hi guys, i would like to seek some advice/comments on using the other modes provided by DSLRs other than the Manual, Aperture and Shutter Priority modes. I have know of people who swear by using 'A' mode and others who uses Manual mode saying that you should be doing your own adjustments especially since you are using a DSLR - "DSLR photographer's pride" ???
But after taking my friend's wedding shots i realised that M and A modes are great if you are taking still life or stuff that you can afford to re-take if the exposure goes wrong. But for events that are constantly on the move, program mode seems to work best as you have less worry on the exposure going wrong and most of the time there will not be a chance for you to re-take that lost moment.
I was flidding with the landscape modes and other modes as well and it seems to me that these preset modes does their job very well! I used to not use them as i wanted to be adjusting my own settings for every shots that i take.. but i realised that the preset modes does the same or maybe a better job at 1/2 the time.
Lastly.. after being into this hobby for 1month.. i realise that i worry about my Aperture settings.. Shutter settings... ISO.... bla bla bla too much and forget about photography composition which is what i feel now as the most important thing in photography.
