I'd like to know how each of you decide what mode to shoot in. For me I usually start with Aperture and Speed depending upon the subject then move to Manual for additional control.

If for exmaple I'm shooting an action shot with some or alot of expected motion then I'll start with Speed priority and choose a shutter speed I suspect will stop the action.

If speed is not a concern then I usually start off in Aperture priority, usually starting with F8 then determining if I'm getting enough shutter speed to expose well. If not then may open the aperture and sacrify DOF, or I may bump up the ISO.

What is your method?
