So I got a D90 and a AF-S DX VR 55-200 lens.

I'm new to all of this camera stuff,Is there a certain way to set it up for photo's from the boat?

I'm not so camera savvy...

Thanks JH

Practice practice practive. The beauty of digital is that you can delete everything that looks like mung. I'll let Nikon guys specify settings for you, cause there are a lot of 'pros' on here who really know their stuff. Actually, do a quick search for Garrett Cortese (sp?) article on wakeboarding photography.

Jeff,
I'd be happy to show you as much as I can if you want to hook up some time.

This will get you started. http://www.wakeboarder.com/display.phtml?id=553

That is a good article..Now I need to read the manual for the camera so I can set it right lol.
If I have it on "auto" will it do it for me? That is the setting that uses the brain of the camera right?

Man I hate reading...

^^^ Well played Jeff. I'm going to Villa Lagos in a couple of weeks, I don't know a lot about Nikon so bring your manual.

Yeah I will. Are you going for the 1st INT event? I saw Alex quickly at Spankey Beaver but I just showed up and dropped some $ off to someone and rolled out in less than 10 minutes.

Jeff were going to Chucks INT opener, You must have seen Alex on Sunday, we left about noon, 7 1/2 hour drive home. I think he was paying off his bar tap from Saturday night . See you at the pond in a couple of weeks.

There is a wealth of knowledge at kenrockwell.com. I have used his "Owners manual for the average joe" lots of times to learn how to use my Nikon D40. He isn't just a Nikon guy though. He does articles about lots of camera makers and lenses. He is a sharp guy that takes awesome photos.
