I figured out that I would like to stick to A mode when i require to shoot non-moving objects. I would switch to S mode when i want to change speed frequently. Would that be a right approach for a beginner like me?

For rotineday time still images, eg landscape,street views,portraits, What should be the starting ISO-200/400 range?.

Nikon cameras have very good quality at ISO settings higher than the base setting of 100. I set mine to start at 200 and turn on Auto-ISO, which intelligently controls the ISO, depending on the light. Auto-ISO will also reduce the ISO if the other settings demand it.

Very low light conditions. Auto ISO saved the day.

Testing at f/2.8. Too much light for fastest SS. ISO was automatically reduced from 200 to 140.
