To capture pictures of a sunset, it’s quite simple as really not to hold on to set up. You can do two things. One automates the camera with the scene mode like what many scenes. Turn your mode dial to SCN, this stands for scene and in here you can find the sunset scene. Just use that dial to move across the different scenes until you get the sunset. Now what this is going to do is it going to optimize the camera for sunset pictures. I mean the color of the picture and hopefully use the 80 ISO as you can see right now my ISO is set to automatic that because the sunset mode forces you to use automatic ISO and automatic White Balance. The reason why this may not be so good is if in case there is not a whole out of light and the ISO is set to more 80. What I would highly recommend was sunset pictures because it’s the colors and the sky that are so crucial on how you recommend having 80 ISO. If this means using a tripod or setting the camera down on something and cropping it with a little bit of paper here and there to change the angle then go ahead and do that but basically you don’t want more than 80 ISO because that can result in a granny image. So that’s why I usually don’t use this setting instead what I’ll do is change my mode dial back to P. P for program, now I have control over ISO and to have control over my White Balance.
I want to make sure that my flash is turned off because flash with the sunset scene mode unless I’m taking a picture of a person is not going to do anything. My ISO is currently set to 80. If yours is not change that with the ISO dial up here. I’m just going to set to 80. I’m just going to change to that and the White Balance should be set to daylight and they’re getting started to guide. I set up my White Balance to easily back us with the shortcut buttons. So I’ll just press that here and I’ll use the dial to move over and I want to choose Daylight. Press Set, now my fastest turn off, my ISO is set to 80 and I’m in Daylight White Balance. This is all perfect. All we need to do right now is my focusing square over the horizon. Why the horizon because the horizon has the most mode of contrast that will help you focus. Press the shutter button halfway, the camera will lock focus. Your focusing square will turn green and so will be force at 80 and the Shutter Speed and the Aperture will be set accordingly.
Once that focus has been locked you can go ahead and recompose the image. You just move that up if it’s a very nice sky that you want you can turn that up or if it’s a reflection of the sun and the water you can turn that down and once its compose the way you want it let’s go ahead and press the Shutter button the rest of the way to capture the image.
