What mode do you find yourself shooting in most of the time?

10 years 2 months ago #14 by Joe Photo Daddy
I'm coming onto 3 years with my D80 and finally this past year started shooting more with manual mode and aperture and shutter priority. I fully don't understand the whole shutter speed stops. Kind of confusing. I understand when the camera has " after the number. Which reflects seconds, but when it goes to 1.3 then 1.6 then 2.0 how fast is that? I know it's a fraction of a second right?

For example, what does 1.3 equal? 1.6?

Manual mode 90% of the time, when I'm trying to control the depth of field I will use Aperture mode, and of course sport shots I use shutter priority.

Depend on what I'm photographing. Manual mode for macro photo's and majority of all my photos, who care's photos - Auto mode, other wise aperture mode for most everything else.
