The Transition to Manual

3 weeks ago I switched to shooting manual, now I only use aperature priority if I need a quick shot and do not have time to meter manually. It has been an interesting experience. I am really starting to get a feel for my camera (the 50D seems to meter about 1/3 stop lighter than it should), and I definitely feel more in control. The next and hardest step is feeling when I will have to override metering based on the scene. I am still shooting and checking, shooting and checking, but less and less. Once I get my 430 ex II I will get a couple more cheap flashes and triggers and start playing with flash manual settings.
