My Five Easy Steps to Shoot in Manual by Kimberly Gauthier

If you like to study the way of taking pictures in Manual mode, maybe this eBook by Kimberly Gauthier might inspire you.  Simple and straight to the point explanation from her will give you the straight answer. On her own word :
I write a photography blog for amateur photographers. I'm a self taught photographer and was surprised to find very few resources for people, like me, who were learning how to use their DSLR on their own. Today, I write a photography blog sharing everything that I've learned and I search for online camera deals, giveaways, and challenges for my readers. My first eBook, My Five Easy Steps to Shoot in Manual, is available for free on my photography blog and Facebook page.

Nicely done. I think this will be helpful to a lot of beginners and even experienced photographers. I disagree with one thing you said in the metering section. You said you meter on the cat's white color and overexpose. Perhaps I'm not understand your explanation. It's always been my experience that if you meter on the white (which is brighter than the orange), the camera will want to close the aperture or increase the shutter speed, thus underexposing.

Hi, I have had my starter gear for quite some time now and every time I pull out my camera I drive myself a bit more insane than I already am. I ask myself should I get a better lens or two, or should I just sell all the gear I have and find a different hobby to give up on. I'm retired and have really loved taking photos for a long time now, but I usually just grab one of my prosumer cameras or just snap with my phone. I spend hours on YouTube learning nothing because I do not get out with my DSLR and practice and I absolutely refuse to use an auto setting.
Your story has given me hope that tomorrow I will finally just do as you did, and have faith that I will soon hit the shutter with confidence that I will be able to take photographs that I am happy with on a consistent basis.

I always shoot in manual. All other modes are unpredictable.
