This Nikon D90 User's Guide Book will make you to an expert on using the Nikon D90, but this alone won’t get great pictures.
To get great photos you still need to get yourself to the right place at the right time and point the camera in the right direction, which is a lot harder than mastering the D90.
Right out of the box at default settings the D90 does a great job, but you need an eye to “see” the photos before you take them.
Once you get the right photo framed in your finder, there are two absolutely critical settings, which if set correctly, will give you extraordinary photos. Most people skip this, and are forever cursed with the same results regardless of how much they spend on new cameras.
Getting great photos out of the D90, or any other camera, really only takes these settings and a good eye:
1.) Take a picture. Look at the rear LCD.
OK? You’re done! If not:
2.) Too light or dark? Change the Expo- sure Compensation and shoot again. OK? You’re done! If not:
3.) Colors not right? Adjust White Balance and try again. OK? You’re done! If not:
4.) Contrast, saturation or other fine points not right? Adjust the Picture Controls. OK? GREAT! If not, you’re either not at the right place, not at the right time, or looking in the wrong direction. It’s never your camera’s fault, but only human to blame it.
Making a great photo involves knowing what makes a great photo, knowing how to get great exposure, knowing when to use the D90’s adjustments, knowing how to get great color, locations, timing, patience and a whole lot more. I cover general photography issues here.
