Good morning everyone!

Alright, I'm here with my first photos that I snapped last night. I think Lynsie thought I was the paparazzi or something, chasing her all over the yard with my camera. Haha!

This is the first picture I took out of the box, just on Auto mode... say hello to Darby:



The rest of these picture I took with on "P" with the camera set to Optimize Image - Vivid and the quality to Fine. Maybe you can help me, I know the other suggestion was to go back "1 stop"... is that on the little black dial when I'm in "P" mode? Didn't get a ton of reading done last night with the little one running around.

My little sourpuss Lynsie... she wasn't in a great mood last night.





A columbine blooming in my backyard:


Our Clematis blooming:


One of my miniature roses:


And finally, just a funny picture of Lynsie Jean that I took... goofy kid!


ETA: Here is a link to my Flickr photo album with more pictures if interested! http://www.flickr.com/photos/alissaa...7619811875565/

Not last night, she was quite the pill... LOL!

So, on your tip a few pages back to put the camera setting at vivid and to go back one stop, I have a question. How do I go back 1 stop? Do I use that black dial in the "P" mode or is it somewhere else?

Thank you!

It's the +/_ you see on the round mode dial on the back of the Nikon.
Push the > +/_ and you can adjust it looking in your LCD.

And just to avoid confusion... How many notches down is one stop?

Folks, Just to let you know, I won't be online hardly at all other than to check my email as Saturday I'm leaving for 10 days on a photo op vacation. We're going up to Canada's Jasper National Park for two days, then to Edmonton for couple days then down through Calgary to Montanan's Glacier National Park for a couple days then work our way back to Tacoma, WA. Should get some great shots of mountains and wildlife on this trip.

C'ya and don't let this P90 threads get outta hand.

When you are shooting with a tripod and remote release (landscapes for example), you should turn off the lens VR and IS settings to acheive sharper images. Otherwise, when your camera goes looking for a vibration and doesn't find one, it will continue to look for one, which can cause a slighly shaky result. However, make it a habit to turn it back on again when your done photographing landscapes. I've been caught many times with it turned off, when I actually needed it on.
