buy s5pro. shoot and digitally add in fill light.
hen you meter the sky, the sky will be correctly exposed with all the colours and details there. If it's a bright day, quite unlikely you have anything brighter than it. So your subject which isn't as bright will becomes underexpose with a BAO GONG face. So you need to lit it up. If the day is bright enough, you use a reflector to reflect the ambient light into the subject face, another approach is on your flash, switch to high speed sync mode because it is almost 100% the fastest sync speed at 1/250 for good cameras is not fast enough shutter for a bright day. Use the AP sync mode to allow higher shutter speed and also power down the flash at the same time. The flash will be just right with a iTTL balance flash from Nikon to give the sufficient light to lit up the under exposed face of your subject. There you get a nice looking face with the background preserved. So don't be curious why you find photographers use flash in broad day light. That's for this purpose
