Shooting on the manual mode setting isn’t as hard as most people think because they haven’t given it any thought. Today’s DSLRs have opened the door to shortcuts, I love shortcuts!
When we choose to shoot in auto exposure modes instead of manual mode we forfeit our judgement, when we forfeit our judgement we are outsourcing our thinking to a computer. Auto exposure settings on camera computers are great but they calculate input to achieve an average. Calculated algorithms are great for good results in average light but algorithms fail in extraordinary light.
