Say, your idea about the tape is excellent. I am going to do that just to make sure I don't manage to get stupid again in the near future. This has really shaken me to my boots because it was avoidable... if I had read the manual completely. I was being a bit of a smarty pants and thought I didn't need to read absolutely everything before proceeding with the use of the camera.
On another topic. I would like to compliment you on your photography. Especially your wonderful pictures of the ladies in your gallery. Very nice indeed. Many lovely women who are very tastefully shown and the exposure and composition is extremely nice. You have a real gift with your camera abilities. Good for you!!
I have not yet had the nerve to post anything. I am afraid of being shot down for not doing a good enough job. Everyone seems so professional on the sites that I visit. The Nikonians site is a wonderful place to visit and learn about what other photographers are doing and to see their interpretation with a camera in hand.
