Use a reflect or
Take a reflector, as it can be surprising how much you can brighten your scene with it without needing another light. Here the sun was coming from behind the model to the left, and diffused slightly through the trees. It made for beautiful backlighting on the hair, but left the face in shade. Using a large silver reflector off to the side on the right and hidden from view, we could bounce the sunlight back at the model’s face. A white reflector can be used for a more subtle bounce, or gold to warm the image up.
