I want to challenge the idea that manual focus won’t work when you have to shoot. So I tried it in some different conditions. Why I have choose this topic well because I spoke with one DSLR owner recently who hadn’t even noticed the manual/auto focus switch on the side of his lens however many cameras also give options for different focusing modes (auto, continuous focusing for moving subjects and manual). Let me say first there is no right or wrong time to use either manual or auto focusing I´m pretty well aware that both can produce great results in almost all situations however there are a few times when you might find it easier to switch to manual focusing. Shooting in manual focus mode is a skill that you need to learn and practice. While you will have more time to get it right when shooting still objects it can become more difficult when shooting moving subjects.
