A few weeks ago while I was downtown with my camera shooting, I wandered into Chapters for a break. Up the escalator I found myself headed to the Arts / Photography section and picked up a book on Photography Project Inspirations. Flipped to a page on shooting in Manual focus versus auto focus. Wow ! I had not done this in ages and totally forgot I had this little switch on my camera. For me it makes taking pictures a little less serious, sometimes you are so focused on focusing on your subject (s) you forget the process should be enjoyable.
