Shooting manual

Hi Lori and Matt,
I've been listening on and off for several months now, I hope that I'm not asking a question that has already been answered in an earlier podcast. But as I get deeper and deeper into the wonderful world of photography, I was wondering if you could cover some basic tip and tricks for shooting in Manual. I am familiar with the "Sunny 16" rule, but could you explain how professionals are able to dial into the perfect exposure so quickly? It usually takes me 2-3 shots before I find the right exposure setting.
By the way, Lori your voice is like a warm glass of milk. Helps me drift off to sleep into a wonderful dream full of shiny cameras. lol

Shooting infrared

I wanted to know if anyone could talk about what is needed to start shooting infrared. I know it is through filters, but which ones work best & how much am I looking to spend?
