I always use the “m” setting when taking pictures. In other words, I set the ISO, colors, shutter and aperture manually, to get the best possible control over my photos. All of the photos posted here on the blog have been a trip to Photoshop. There I adjust image sharpness, light / shadow, contrasts and colors.
