Here’s an example of fill flash that you can compare. The image without fill flash is underexposed because the camera meter is reading the bright background and averaging for the scene. You could probably pull the dark forground out by post processing. You could mask and get better foreground exposure without blowing out the background. Fill flash will expose the foreground enough to bring out the details without affecting the background. There is a little glare from the flash seen on the statue. You could also post process this small flaw. Susan uses fill flash frequently with her portraits and it is not too noticeable. This example with and without shows you examples so that you may choose.
