    That's something you have to build up yourself as you go along and learn from your mistakes

    Well...here's mine :
    1. Make sure resolution setting is appropiate
    2. Make sure ISO settings are appropriate
    3. Check WB setting
    4. Check metering mode
    5. Set adequate Active D-lighting (if necessary)
    6. switch metering to appropiate mode (P,S,A,M)
    7. Reset exposure bias/ flash exposure bias to appropiate stops

    something along those lines

    Check if battery has enough juice.
    Check if memory card has enough space too.
    The best things in life are free.
