    Exposure
    Recovery
    Fill light
    Colors
    Vibrance/saturation

    Shoot correctly metered
    Shoot to get colors or depth of field depending on necessary elements
    Shoot correctly composed/cropped/rotated in frame

    since im new to the DSLR world

    1- take a shit load of pics with different settings
    2- compare each shot when uplodaed to computer to see what each setting change did to the photo
    3- get angry that my pics suck
    4- resize the ones that dont suck, piss of AP by posting a 'critque my pics' thread
    5- put them in Lightroom and play with each setting and try and find something that looks good
    6- post good LR edits on facebook and hope they get comments

    :dunno:
