    Meter the face.

    This should be in the General section?

    i think if you do that the sunset would be overly exposed, maybe what he like is that both face and sunset properly exposed so reflector or flash i think will work

    Bracket and merge. I would prefer fill in flash or reflector.

    other than all the above, recompose. Sun on one side of frame and subject at the other side facing the sun
    I get paid more shooting part time ...... damn, I should find more time to shoot part time

    Like all above.... mount the cam on tripod and do not touch/move it.
    - take the image of the sunset
    - take the image of human face with sunset behind
    - merge both img in cam or PS it.

    From my understanding...

    For such shots, you need practice.
    Different situation need different techniques to shoot such shots.
