If you want to get any nikon flash to be used as a fill in flash,
you must set your flash mode to slow sync,

that way you are not using the flash gun to control the brightness of the scene,
Once you have set the slow sync, use the camera in any mode,

let the camera controll the aperture or shutter or both, or set it yourself in M,

then just dial in the amount of flash you want added, say -2 stops, but do this on the camera.
Mac.
