    Well, from here I'll move on to critters. Definitely more challenges there! I think I've pushed the button 2600 times, take off a 1/3 of that number for the continuous shooting and I've only gotten relatively few that I'm happy with. Here's hoping that number starts to improve. It's all a learning game isn't it?

    It was somewhere after this batch I figured out setting the ISO meant that's what the camera would use (see 500 all the way down). I thought the book said set the highest ISO you would want the camera to go up to.

    I am VERY new to this whole thing too, so take my opinions with a grain of salt (unless they are helpful)

    On picture #3 with the Iris's I would have used a larger aperture (lower F) and focused in on one of the Iris flowers and let the others be blurred. Again, just my opinion.

    I am jealous. These are incredible.

    I went and took pictures of my folks iris' that are now blooming. Nothing like this.

    I fear I must send my camera in to get it calibrated or at least looked at.

    that is a particular setting. with the D90 you can use a feature called Auto ISO. this allows the camera to choose the ISO on the fly. you can set the min and max ISO you want the camera to use. so you can allow the camera to choose between 200 and 800 ISO if you wanted. useful when paning between light and dark areas.

    though this is not the default setting. under shutter, aperture and full manual the ISO is set manually. so whatever it is set to on the display, is what it will be shooting at.

    excellent pics by the way.
