D5000 tips and habits? What do you shoot?
Dec 18, 2010

Since the D5000 has been out a while, I'm interested in how folks have developed their procedure/process to achieve the results they like or use. Also, not much love for the old 'D5K' lately with the newer model talk, so I thought it deserved a new thread.

SO - How have you evolved your start to finish, what settings do you like for your more typical shots? What do you shoot, mostly?

I'm currently really loving my 35mm 1.8G and tend to go wide open (the green/red lateral CA is not always a bad thing) with base ISO, but there's so much flexibility with ISO-1600 and some PP that I find myself using that a lot in very low light. Some time spent in Lightroom can fix a lot of imperfection...

So, kind of a 'shoot the sh--' thread for the D5K crowd.
