Chapter 7. Shooting Tips

Here you’ll find tips on settings to use for different kinds of shooting, including recommended settings for some Playback, Shooting, and Custom Setting menu options. You can set up your camera to shoot the main type of scenes you work with, then use the charts that follow to make changes for other kinds of images. Most will set up their D90 for my All Purpose settings, and adjust from there.
