It's still good to shoot at twilight (after sun sets and before total nightfall) and use a tungsten / incandescent light white balance if possible.

Remember - if you can relax and just enjoy practicing different shots, you'll find out which settings work best for you - that is the fun of digital if you have a bit of time that you can use to "play" with your camera. (fitting in dinner, dishes, kids, spouse, errands, chores, etc. PLUS playtime on RetouchPro.)
