    I'm going out next weekend to take some pictures.

    I'll be taking pictures from the start of the sun setting and likely up to after it has set.

    I have a Minolta DYNAX 4 35mm. What setting would you recommend me using to get the best pictures possible?

    Once the sun has set, should I follow the instructions in my manual for a "night portrait"? I'll be taking pictures of people outside but what settings should I use when it's still pretty light out as the sun is just starting to set? Then when it's at the in-between light/dark?

    Sorry if this is confusing..

    Thanks.

    Impossible to say as it depends on light available and direction too. Use your camera meter.

    For portraits, meter for the sky and use flash to fill the subjects with light.

    Take a tripod. Once the sun sets the available light drops VERY quickly.
