    Totally depends on the weather/lighting conditions at the time. Use a tripod if you have one, use the lowest ISO you can and I generally keep my camera in Aperture priority mode. Other than that, I'd suggest just playing with different settings and getting creative!

    Good choice of camera by the way. How do you find the D80? I've always had Nikons: a D40, a D200, now a D300s and I loved all of them!

    Would like to see some of your shots.

    I also like to use aperture priority mode 90% of the time, unless I'm taking a night shot, then its shutter priority

    Digital images have only so much dynamic range,In some shots, some part of the picture may have 'blown highlights',If the main subject has blown highlights, one method is to decrease exposure until you no longer have blown highlights in your image,you press the exposure compensation button and decrease your exposure until you are satisfied that you have no blown highlight.
