Advice on using a Speedlight for filling shadows

Hi All,

Would some kind soul give me some advice please?

I don't use flash normally but am curious about using it to fill shadows in contrasty light.

My question is: if a blast from the flash lightens up the shows, it's also going to lighten up the rest of the image yeah?  I get how it would be nice to lighten these shows but surely it's not so nice to have hilights blowing out or your pleasing midtones over expose?

Could someone please explain to this flash noobie how it is possible to expose the shadows a bit lighter but not have the flash effect the rest of the image?

Thanks very much in advance.
