What settings should my Nikon camera be on?

A good starting place is to set the ISO to 400, aperture to f/5.6. Because you’ll likely want to control the sharpness of the background, set the camera’s mode dial to Aperture Priority. In this mode, you set the Aperture, and the camera selects the corresponding shutter speed.

Best camera settings in photography

  1. Aperture: f/1.8-f/5.6 in low light or for a narrower depth of field, and f/8-f/16 for a wider DoF.
  2. Shutter Speed: From 30 seconds to 1/4000th of a second depending on the scene.

What is a good aperture?

An f/4.0 maximum aperture is generally good in medium lighting levels. An f/5.6 maximum aperture requires good lighting or image stabilization unless outdoors before sunset. If you are shooting landscapes from a tripod, you are likely happy with f/8.0 or f/11.0. That your lens opens wider may be of little importance.

How to take great photos with the Nikon D3000?

To get great photos you still need to get yourself to the right place at the right time and point the camera in the right direction, which is a lot harder than mastering the D3000. Right out of the box at default settings, the D3000 does a great job all by itself. Making a great photo involves locations, timing, patience and a whole lot more.

How do you use the AF sensor on a Nikon D3000?

Simply press the round rear dial to move the selected AF sensor around as you look through the finder. I like the 3D mode, in which the D3000 magically moves the sensor around on its own to track the subject, if either it or you move. MENU > CAMERA > AF area mode > 3D-tracking > OK.
