1/ Try some fill-flash if you're not too far from the subject (just force the flash on so it brightens the shadowed bits)
2/ Depending on the camera see if it can help (the intelligent exposure setting on the FZ38 will alutomatically brighten the dark bits for you and does an OK job)
3/ Try my AutoHDR which pretty much does what SirGlad suggests but automatically. You can drag/drop up to 1000 in at once and it will process them all in one go.
