    Try using the flash with daylight back lit scenes or set the shutter speed at 1/60 and the ISO to 1600 then experiment from there.

    That isn't a setting sorry for the confusion.

    To take a picture of a subject that is lit in the background by sunlight such as the beach.
    Reduce shutter speed to a slower setting such as 1\60th of a second.
    Then increase ISO which would be sensitivity to light by increasing that setting to a higher number such as 1600.
    Also enabling the flash (forced on) will help to light subjects who appear dark due to heavy back-lighting.

    Use these settings as a starting point.
