Although I have had other cameras before the D7000 I've always used automatic settings to take my photos, with mixed results. I've just today begun to practice pictures using Aperture mode. Here are test shots using the totally program mode vs aperture priority mode using my D7000 on a tripod with the 20-700VR2 lens at 85mm.

automatic (f2.8):

The results are dramatically different with the f10 being the better photo.

I'm going to keep on experimenting. I've ordered the "Understanding Exposure by Brian Peterson" to help me out. No wonder I've always had so many fewer keepers that always seemed out of focus to me when I was not using my camera properly before.
