Mostly autofocus, but it depends on what I'm doing. Video is always manual, and if the camera's locked down on a tripod, then manual focus with the highest magnification on live view.
We have a wildfire going on here, and it's too bad that it produces really beautiful light. These were both autofocus, but at a small aperture (f/8) and focusing near infinity, it doesn't matter too much.
Thank AY I start with a vsco preset and then add more contrast mess with shadows and vignette in LR the. I take it in PS sharpen (never figured out sharpening in LR) then mask a layer tht I want to be darker like the sky in the church photo and mess with curves there .
