The Stay Focused Podcast #9: The System For Becoming Confident in Manual Mode


Hey everyone it’s Emily Supiot! Welcome back to another episode of the Stay Focused Podcast! Today we are talking all things manual mode. So if you’re still shooting on automatic or tinkering around with aperture or shutter priority and haven’t made the switch over to manual mode you are going to love this episode! It is jam-packed with information that you’re going to be able to take and apply today (woo hoo!) My hope is that after this episode you’ll be able to turn that dial to M and start shooting in manual mode.

Today’s episode is all about Becoming Confident in Manual Mode


Now there’s a lot of information we’re going to cover today so if you have a pen and paper handy a might be a good idea to jot down some notes right now.  BUT if you’re in the car or  if you got your headphones on at the gym or maybe you’re even in the shower– no worries because I’m going to link up to a free manual mode shooting guide that you’ll be able to download and flip through later on after the episode (yay!) so no worries if you don’t have that pen and paper handy because I will have some freebies for you over the show notes today!  (Make sure to check out the links below!)
