How long did it take for you to get the hang of manual mode and start taking a shit/good photo ratio of 60:40?

nobody takes a 60:40 shit:good ratio, not even pros unless they're doing 90% studio work. pros are lucky to get 25% good, amateurs should aim for 10%

I got the hang of M in the first month of owning a camera. Taking good pictures took a little longer. Just because you can properly expose a shot on M doesn't mean it's a good photo

I learned to shoot on a K1000 years ago at college.

>this aperture, light dark
>this shutter speed, fast slow
>this needle, keep in middle
>go take photos, develop and print after lunch

ASP modes still seem like voodoo.

I learned to shoot on a Praktica LTL half a lifetime ago. Auto? What is auto?

A few years of casual shooting for me. When I started I never needed anything more than aperture priority, as I got more into film and I started to work out what kind of look I wanted out of my photography in general I started to learn to meter in my head. Funnily enough I had the same experience as learning to tune my guitar by ear. My ears are consistently half a step flat, my manual metering is usually one step under. The consistency is weird, I have to set it how I think it should be, then consciously change it to what I know it should be. I think I learnt it mostly by memory, so I know "if the sky looks like this, use roughly these settings".

I read somewhere that if you're getting one great image per roll of film you're doing well, so whether I'm shooting film or digital I aim for roughly 1 image I personally am really proud of out of 36, then about 3 or 4 at a push per 36 that are good enough to share with friends on social media.

Getting the hang of manual mode only took a few months but getting a reasonable hold on composition and lighting took 6 months. And then actually taking decent pictures took 9 months.

I'm still using manual for a lot of situations but lately for events and birding I'm trying aperture priority with exposure compensation. Even a split second messing with dials makes me miss moments and I'm having better results with it so far. My camera lets me set minimum shutter speed and max ISO so my big issues with auto are gone, random blurry, high ISO, missed exposure shots where it wasn't necessary.
