I had a similar challenge this weekend, taking a quick shot outdoors, people in shadow with a brightly lit background. I didn't think fill flash would be powerful enough to balance my subject. So I went to the Advanced Filters through the drive menu. I used High Key. It's an in camera JPEG trick and won't make a Raw. This is on my X-E2, I assume the same feature is available on the X-E1. Here is the result:

Happy Father's Day, Dad!

The drawback is the overblown background. But hey, these types of shots are about capturing a moment.

And this was before I used High Key. I knew I going to have a bad result and didn't care about focus, I was already thinking about changing to advanced filters.

IĀ suppose spot metering may have been an option as well.
