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 buy a monopod, an umbrella adapter, and a 24" umbrella then mount my flash on the monopod with the umbrella and hold it with my left hand while shooting with my right.  It is all there in Lighting101 on David Hobby's Strobist blog.

Joe McNally's "Da Grip" can also be used by right eye shooters.
