Hi all, I have a Canon 650D & I am trying to move away from taking pictures in Auto Mode.

Can anyone give advice on the best settings for a SLR for a sunset.
Program (P), Aperture Priority (Av), Shutter Priority (Tv), or Manual (M) mode.

Also what would be the best Exposure, Aperture & ISO Speed to set.

Hi Chas,

Well done for switching away from Auto. You can now tell the camera what you want rather than the other way around.

My trick, when taking sunsets or sunrise is to underexpose the shot, this gives beautiful rich colours.

As every sunset is different it's impossible to offer the correct settings, just stick your camera on a tripod and practice. You don't need to be in the Maldives to capture stunning sunsets so practice while at home then when you get out there you will be able to grab some fantastic shots.
