My current set up D80 with a 70 to 300 VFR lens. I'm very new to photography so I'm looking for some help. I'm very new to the whole digital camera thing and I'm a little over whelmed right now. I'm try to shoot some football games for my son. I'm trying to shot in either "A" or "S", ISO around 200 on sunny days and 400 to 600 on cloudy days. Yesterday it was cloudy and when ever I took a picture the helmets and gray sky would flash. So I went to sports and auto because I couldn't figure it out. The pictures didn't flash at all. I want to have control of the camera but I need some basic setting to start with. So what are the basic setting you use and how do you get to those settings?
