Hi.The better way is to set your D90 in manual mode.If your picture is white is because the speed was too slow...Then try with other speed,the D90 tell you how to adjust it.Be patient it will come soon...and try to work with a tripod too,it help a lot ;-))

According to the FAQ section under Info above, the D90 will only work in Manual mode. Set your camera to M on the dial. Depending on which aperture ring you start with, you will have to adjust the shutter speed accordingly. When looking thru your viewfinder, you should see a scale with a + on the left and - on the right. keep turning the dial that adjust the shutter speed until it is dead center. You may have to adjust the marking afterwards depending on how your exposure turned out. Adjusting to the + will allow more light in and your picture will be brighter. Also start with either F4 or F5.6 when starting out, it will make it easier.
There is a little learning curve at first, but when you get the hang of it, it will be hard to put down.

Being new to DSLR, all I do to find the correct light is take a picture look at it and then adjust aperture and speed. But sometimes the camera will change my speed setting. Which is confusing because on the “M” setting I should have total control.

There is no aperture dial on the lens. You can only change the aperture by switching aperture discs inside the lens. The ring on the lens adjusts focus...

True I made a mistake when I said that. I spoke before I actually examine the lens. Thank for the catch. I am still in the experimental phase of the D90.
