TIP OF THE DAY
When to use manual mode instead of Aperture or Shutter-speed priority?
Shutter speed: controls motion.
Aperture: controls how much of the image is sharp (foreground vs background).
The image above was shot at Aperture priority. The intention was to get the whole plane from the foreground to the background sharp. Which was achieved. In turn, the moving subjects came out blurry. This is because the camera doesn't really know what you want it to do with the shutter speed. It will try it's best to reach an average setting, which might not always work. In Manual, in this particular photo, you could alter the shutter speed and have both sharpness and motion freeze. Though like everything in Photography, at the compromise of something else. (ISO-Noise in this case).
