So I took my daughter out today to take some pictures with my new Nikon D3300. I used the settings you had on your cheat sheets for Portrait (Daytime-Outdoors). It was kind of overcast and she was standing in the shade.
55mm M f/5 ISO400 1/320 AF-S Single-point AF
Shot with my kit lens. What type of lens would you suggest for this picture?
When I look at her in the pictures, my opinion is that her skin is washed out and the back ground is too vibrant.
