Set your Nikon to manual ...that's right.

Can you see through the lens ? Lens cap is off ? We're going step by step so don't laugh :))

Go outside to use daylight, set camera to daylight exposure mode, set iso to 200 .

Set shutter speed to 400......press shutter.....is the exposure too dark or too light ?

Adust shutter speed up or down to correct the exposure.

Now try adding an aperture......test again .

Keep this up until you feel everything is working or ask for more help, good luck and we all had to start someplace .
