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 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ib_GjcYVgmY is helpful and also has an interesting  ring flash accessory.
