We are photographers that prefer the manual workflow in taking photos: manual focusing and manual metering. Why? Because the process of taking photos manually is the most exciting part of photography. There's no one to blame if you didn't nail the exposure or focus but you can learn from it and correct it. You are in absolute control!
We prefer that members have rangefinder camera ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rangefinder_camera ). If you don't have a rangefinder camera but you're interested to learn the manual photography workflow, you are definitely welcome but we expect you to disable all the auto mechanisms in your camera. That's the price to pay to encourage you not to get lazy in taking photos ;).
