Or he's Tebowing.

Nice job overall. 28-135 is still a pretty good lens. No reason to be ashamed! thumb.gif

Av is Aperture Priority mode. Basically, you set the aperture you want to shoot at, and the camera's meter then looks at the scene and decides what shutter speed will allow you to get that aperture and have a correct exposure. I shoot in Aperture Priority probably 80% of the time on my D7000, because I set the aperture I want in order to achieve depth-of-field within the photo. You can use it any time of day you want as long as there's enough light for your meter to operate thumb.gif

M is Manual. You set everything. Basically, if you're metering by the zone system or reciprocity (rather advanced) or just want to have a faster way to compensate for your camera's meter reading, you use M. A lot of people argue that the best way to learn how to shoot is in M, but I'm a fan of migrating first from P to A and then to M. That way you introduce one new level of abstraction at a time. On film I shoot in M because the meter in my film body is fairly simple and doesn't always meter that well in the auto-exposure modes. On digital, I only really shoot M when I'm doing macro work or really need to fine-tune an exposure (like for portraiture). Obviously this is a bit of a simplification--many photographers shoot exclusively in M and have no problem!

Nice job on the pics, I haven't been to the zoo in years.

I did that Av to M thing, never have used any other mode on my camera for some reason lol and I really see no need to use the Av mode now after using Manual, M mode is way better for me. All you need to do is know what your ISO, shutter and aperture adjustments are and pay slight attention to the meter on the camera. It seriously becomes second nature with a bit of practice. I found I have had issues with proper shutter speeds for the types of shots I did often b/c in Av mode I'd simply pick up and shoot and not pay attention to any of my settings. Manual keeps me aware of what the camera is doing and what I should set everything too.
