    I WANT TO TAKE A PICTURE OF A FATHER AND DAUGHTER BOTH ON THEIR OWN BIKES LOOKING AT THE SUN DOWN (SUNSET).
    BUT I WANT TO TAKE A PICTURE OF THEIR BACKS.
    I HOPE I MAKE SENCE
    THE PICTURE OF THEM WILL BE IN COLOR BUT THEY WILL PROBABLY BE DARK A SILHOUETTE

    I'm not sure what sort of gear you're working with. But if you have a camera that allows you to play around with the settings, I would meter for the sunset, this would give you a perfect exposure for the sunset while giving you the silhouette effect of the father and daughter that you're looking for.

    You will need to shoot in
    Manual Mode,
    Set your camera to Aperture Priority
    Set the metering mode to Spot Meter
    To effectively meter the sunset put your focal point right on the hottest point in the sunset and take your reading.
    Switch camera to Manual mode
    Dial in the reading you noted from the Aperture priority meter reading.
    Dial in a -1 stop exposure compensation
    Focus on the models backs and shoot.
