When do you shoot manual – remember that question?
One example of a case: when the light is constant (cloudy day), and when you need to shoot things that vary in brightness, and some of which are dark or bright, like monument and people in black uniforms.
In other words, like in the shoot I did for The Burlington Post Sunday.
See yesterday: you would have to change exposure all the time by varying exposure compensation constantly. “manual” means I can concentrate on what to shoot, not on technical details.
