The issues alluded to here are easy to understand and to correct for, all basic photo books will provide answers.

If you are shooting people against the light, you can either expose for the background and provide some fill light on the faces (using a flash or reflector, or both); or expose for the shaded faces and watch the background go bright and even overexposed.

Typically, one would choose the first route, and use a flash as fill. But then of course your flash may need to be powerful enough, and your camera needs to be able to do high synch speed flash shooting...

If all of this sounds too complicated, don't sweat, there is a reason why many cameras have a "green" mode on the mode dial, or several scene modes.
