  Fill flash can be best described as a means to augment ambient light ... to illuminate foreground subjects or shadow areas and give them the same approximate exposure value as their surroundings. When and how you would use it depends upon the situation. Typically, one or two stops under a normal setting on your flash unit is about right.
