The point of the exercise is simply to focus on composition without distraction.

I actually have the want to teach exposure and focus, even tried to help a few people on a photo club field trip a few weeks back. The biggest struggle was the full auto cameras and owners that do not know their way around their camera and actually having to set exposure via a menu tree, what a PITA!

I can set up my 4x5 from trunk to shot faster than many can set a manual exposure.

The other PITA is that all the cameras are different. Get one person going and you have to start from scratch with the next.

I don't want to teach people how to turn dials and hunt through menus, I want to help them take photos.
