Sun positioner and Arnold renderer

I'm using the sun positioner and rendering with Arnold in 3dsmax, and I'm wanting to adjust the shadows I'm getting which are very dark. I have the sun positioned at about midday so the scene is bright enough. Is there an easy way of reducing the shadow blackness or density? Adding fill lights doesn't seem to change anything.
Thanks for any help

I have never tried Arnold, but you should be able to use a physical sky somehow. This will give you lighting in the shadows. Maybe you need 1 diffuse bounce also, since often in other renderers, the physical sky is 1st bounce of GI.

I found it in the render setup/arnold renderer/environment-background-atmosphere/advanced.
