For Sunset Images, the most important thing to remember is the ISO.
Since the most important thing in this picture are the colors in the sky, you want a very, very low ISO in order to maintain those brilliant colors without introducing any image noise so press the ISO button here with your index finger and go up to choose 100. Go ahead and press Set.
Now, your White Balance should be set to Day Light. Go ahead and press the WB button, choose Day Light. If the sky is very nice orange reds and things like that and you want to warm up that up even more, you can increase the brilliance of those colors by choosing either Shade or Cloudy. These are also very good options for sunset pictures. Go ahead and press Set.
Now, what you want to do is use a tripod so you don’t have any camera shake because the Shutter Speed will potentially be a little bit slower due to lack of light.
If there’s a very bright sun then you won’t have any problems at all but if the sun is behind clouds then you may have issues with lack of light so the Shutter Speed will be a lot longer and then you’re going to want to set the camera down.
Now, basically it’s very simple. Focus on the horizon, press the Shutter button halfway, recompose the image so the horizon is not in the center. You probably don’t want the horizon to be in the center. You want most of the image to the sky. And then just go ahead and press the Shutter button the rest of the way to take the picture.
Again, when you press the Shutter button halfway and you notice that your Shutter Speed is well below 1/6 of a second, you want to make sure that the camera is set down on something or that you’re using a tripod.
