What is best setting to use while I shoot street people style (full body)? I just bought my camera Nikon D3100 so bear with me...help?!

    The beauty of digital photography is that you can experiment all you want. You can shoot 100's of images to get just one that's a keeper, with no regrets. There's no cost for processing negatives and no spending cash on prints you don't want.

    What I mean to say is experiment. To start, set your 18-55mm lens to 18mm. If you're outdoors in the daylight, set your ISO to 200 (on the screen); 400 if in low light. Set the dial (on top) to "no flash" (that's the setting just under the green "auto"). In fact, this will be auto without flash.

    I shoot everything in "RAWf." This gives me more lattitude in processing images through my software programs. The camera will automatically create a JPEG image as well.

    Now have fun and don't worry. You'll learn as you go.
