For Dusk or Dawn scenes, the idea is to get everything in focus and have those colors in the sky as brilliant as possible.
So, your White Balance is probably the most important thing and you want to set that to Day Light. So, make sure that the White Balance, press the White Balance button right here and move over to Day Light. This will get you the most accurate colors in the sky. Press Set. Your ISO should be set to 100 and this will get you the cleanest colors without any image noise or a grain. So, go ahead and press the ISO button. Remember that’s here by your index finger so you can press that and go up to 100.
Press Set. Now, because we’re using 100, the camera is not as sensitive to the amount of light available. Obviously, you can’t use the flash, that’s not going to do anything. And so, you’ll have to deal with the available light. And if it’s very, very dark, an ISO of 100 will get us great colors with very little noise but it will also decrease the shutter speed which means again we have to use a tripod.
The metering mode should be set to evaluative so make sure that you press the Up navigation button here and that metering mode should be set up here to evaluative metering. I’m going to press Set. And that’s pretty much it. Because we’re using the Program Mode, we’re in control of the flash, flashes down, so it’s not going to be used. Press the Shutter button halfway, focus on something at a distance such as the horizon and then recompose the image. Tilt the camera up or down depending on what you want to have, take up most of the picture and then press the Shutter button the rest of the way to take the shot.
Now, you can’t really see what‘s happening with the White Balance before taking the picture. But if you want to warm up the tones a little bit, here’s a little trick, press the White Balance button and use either the shade or cloudy setting and this will warm up the tones in the sky a little bit more.
So, if you’re’ looking for that really bright reach orange, yellow, and reds in the skies, you can use these options I supposed to the Day Light option. And that will produce even richer orange and reds in the sky. Go ahead and press Set. And that’s pretty much it. Again, remember press the Shutter bottom halfway, focus first, recompose your picture, and press the Shutter button the rest of the way to take the picture.
