thanks for the suggestion, but due to the conditions and moving around I cannot use a stand and off camera flash.

What I am asking is what is the best/accessory way to take these photo with on camera flash?

What would you do if you only had the on camera flash?

I would do a search on flickr on glow run and see what settings are being used for various pictures. To me it seems no flash. I think your best bet is a fast lens, a canon 50mm 1.8 prime and disable the flash on the camera but use the flash as it has focus assist which is a great asset. Also I would get a TTL-Off-Camera Flash Cord for Canon EOS - 3' or 6' which you can still use on the fly as you would hold the camera in one hand and the flash in another for better looking flash photography.

This video is helpful and also has an interesting  ring flash accessory.
