Taking pictures at dusk/sunset

Posted in »

    I tried taking some pictures tonight of a sunset with hills in foreground and wasn't able to capture much of the color in the hills as compared to the colors in the sky. I tried changing the aperture and shutter speed while adjusting the ISO. What do you recommend I do for the next go around?

    Howdy @cali_andy - Read my response in the "Sunrise and Sunset Beach Settings" thread. That should answer most of your questions. Happy shooting! :)

    Thanks, Moose I didn't see that post before I was only looking in the D3100 forum
