I just purchased the Nikon D-70 and the SB-600 speed light to use for hospital public relations photos. I don't have much time to experiment beforethe photo shoots scheduled for next week. I have to take indoor shots of kids with physicians next week and wonder if the portrait vari-program will work. If not should I work with the aperture priority setting?

Aperture mode would be better than the scene modes. The scene modes were put there to guide those coming to Dslr from P and S and are far from ideal.

For your shots and given u have limited time to learn the controls then aperture priority is fine. Alternatively the Auto and Program modes will workfine

The Portrait scene mode or the P mode will work ok for you. I would perfer the P mode as you can adjust the focus area and metering area. Be sure to use bounce flash with the SB600.

I would definately use the Program or Aperature Mode. Unfortunately I dont believe the SB600 comes with a diffuser like the SB800. I might would look into getting a diffuser for the flash, because thinking of it being a hospital setting, the bouncing that you might need maynot be available.
