Keep the people out of the bright sun (heat and squint) hopefully looking toward darker background behind you.

Use camera in manual mode to get good exposure of the sunlit background.

Set the flash to AA mode. Should give you excellent exposures. If necessary set a compensation on the flash to get good exposure on people.

Thanks for the tips Quantum.

I guess a bit of experimentation is required to find the "basic" starting point.

Any of you Wedding Photogs care to share some of your "fill flash" basic settings?

Thanks Mark.
