Hi,

Set the camera mode dial to S (Shutter Priority, see page 104 in your reference manual) Mode: Shutter speed 1/250 or 1/500 (using the Command dial) at ISO to 100 - 200 (Page 95 of the manual) for full sunny daylight, Same shutter speeds, but increase ISO to 400 - 800 for early evening sundown with lights, then, 1600 for full night with lights. The setting of the ISO is important since it determines the camera's image sensitivity.

If you do not have the manual handy you can download a PDF copy at the link below:
