I shoot a lot of reality and every now and then, the conditions are cganing quick enough that all auto is best, just to ensure I have an image at all times. I am my own editor and I lean on that a lot, knowing I can make anything perfect later but also knowing I may miss a shot if over exposed from the last manual shot I was on. I have to have an image as life is what is happening while a brother is futsing with settings.
Given time, I always make every shot as pretty as it can be. The truth sometimes there is absolutly no time. Aim, get the shot, rock on.
