Which mode?

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

26 Which ex­po­sure mode you use is of­ten just a mat­ter of per­sonal taste. You can, af­ter all, use your Nikon’s P, A, S or M modes and get ex­actly the same re­sult in your im­ages.

For wildlife, you fre­quently want to re­strict the depth of field as much as pos­si­ble to avoid dis­tract­ing back­grounds and to keep the shut­ter speed high. For this rea­son aper­ture-pri­or­ity (A) mode is best start­ing point – you can then use ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion to change the bright­ness to suit. A more pro­fes­sional ap­proach is to use man­ual (M) mode. You need to be more on the ball with this, but it has the ad­van­tage that ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion is that much faster to im­ple­ment.
