This is a big question like "How should I prepare food?"

Photographers can deal with light and shadow before, during, and after a photo is taken. But I think you're asking about cameras. You're right, cameras with larger sensors are more capable to deal with extremes in light and shadow (dynamic range).

A lot of us here will shoot in raw format, instead of JPEG, then edit the raw file with image editing software, then make our own JPEGs. Raw files are better than JPEG for light and shadow. Check and see if the camera you have right now will shoot in raw.
