    Hi to all, i am using a D80 and with a 18-200mmVR lens. may i know what are the iso and WB settings and what is the image size all about? does smaller means poorer quality pictures or what? thx for the help.

    Practise.... try the different settings and how it gives you a different picture each time.

    Use ISO of 200, 400 and also 800
    Try aperture mode of f5.6 to f8 and see which gives you better DOF.

    WB is subjective and in a DnD scene, it can vary from location to location and also depending on the lighting setup for the event itself. Try using RAW to give you a better control as I believe the WB will change from angle to angle and lighting change.

    A smaller picture size will give you a lowered quality.

    And the flash can be varied as well. I'd suggest you use TTL (concentrate on subjects first) and see if the flash ev needs to be tuned downwards (esp at closer ranges)
