I had a question as far as focus, when you're shooting do you shoot in manual or auto focus? If you shoot in manual focus, what were some way you improved on shooting manually? and How was the transition for you shooting from auto to manual?

really good question.

the first time i started shooting in manual i was at a graduation when a much older photographer walked up to me, looked at my camera and turned the switch to manual. afterwards he said, “never take it out of that setting, it will help you become better than you imagine.” I’ve been working in manual ever since.

the transition from manual to auto is a transition indeed but i feel its a necessary one. You will learn to appreciate the craft before there was a option between the two. Manual gives you a better opportunity to break into some great depth of field and blurred options imo. I use auto focus from time to time but it just depends on what your shooting.
