    Don't know if this belongs in the lighting forum or not (my apologies if it's in the wrong place), but here's my deal:

    I'm going to an outdoor festival tomorrow and want to snap away. Obviously the lighting won't be optimum (to put it mildly) as the sun will be right overhead. What are some tips you guys can share about shooting in broad daylight? I've done it before, but I'm always up for learning more.

  2. what will you be shooting?
    what lens will you be using?

    1 main hint..... FILL FLASH
    use it often
    it'll make all the difference in the world

    Thanks Ron
  6. Shoot everything at 1/4000th at f/22 and make sure to shoot at the fastest ISO! :wink:

    Really, shoot at 1/125-160th at f/8-11 and shoot at the lowest ISO possible. Adjust the WB accordingly.

    If you're asking questions here, you better start reading your manual. It would probably help if you got a photo book as well. Don't even dare go into P mode or you'll be booted out of the Nikon brotherhood! :biggrin:
