How do I take a picture of the silhouette outdoors?

I just bought the Canon XSi and I'm trying to learn how to use it. It's my first SLR. Me going on vacation in a week, and I want to take a photo silhouette on the beach at sunset with my husband and daughter. Only her picture with her on his shoulders with him with outstretched arms holding right at the water's edge. What would be so nice if I could find a way to carry it out. Any help is appreciated! I'm still trying to learn the values …. So what I need the whole set?

Set your aperture to F5.6 in a priority mode. Take a meter reading of the sky near the sun … NO directly toward the sun. Note in the viewfinder so the shutter speed is. Then set the exposure manually. For example, the indicated shutter speed 1 / 125. Then, put the camera in manual mode and adjust the shutter of 1 / 125 and the opening of F5.6. Indeed, an ISO of 100 should give you a speed fast enough shutter. If the speed is low, as 1 / 60 or less, increase the ISO to 400. Focus on the subject. You do not have to worry about the exhibition and have surrounded it, If you are shooting at sunset, the brightness of the subject will be much less than their exposure sky, what the subject will be dark (in silhouette). steve
