Skin Black Canon
Canon Rebel XSI-shooting people from the outside how to prevent dark shadows in the middle of his face?

I'm a novice photographer with a camera exceptional not fully know how to use yet. This weekend, I shot a barbecue. There were many people in black and white, and I tried my best to get the lighting so that their faces appear regardless of skin tone. When I checked the photos on my computer, so that many were completely bad for the poor light in their faces. I have no external flash. Is there any way to prevent dark shadows in my pictures outdoors? What values do you like to use? Please explain laymans terms. Thank you. I am sure that cloudy weather is better, but I can not always control the weather for the day. This particular day was bright and sunny, and I happened to be the designated photographer. I'm sure there are photographers out there who have had to shoot in sunny weather. I wonder what settings they used.

Make sure that the people are in the correct position for lighting, curves adjustment in Photoshop or using a flash in the shaded area. It is possible need to configure your camera to take three pictures at once with a stop and stop in a way you can choose the best.
