on prosumer camera, iso is not something we normally wanna play with. but in tis case, you have to... try using iso 400 and above to allow the background to light up... then flash as fill in to light up the subject. Timing could be from 1/4-1/30, depending on the lighting condition.

Not easy to achieve on a prosumer camera.

What you'd need to do is to expose the BG to at least 1-2 stop below the flash exposure to maintain a almost similar exposure for both the subject and background. What most of us would do is to use a higher ISO setting coupled with a large aperture and the external flash should be set to negative EV (settings will differ accoridng to situation and lighting conditions)

This will bring the lighting on the subjects to just slightly above the BG conditions. ;)
