The shutter speed

will control how much ambient light is used. 1/60th will let in a lot of light from the surroundings; faster speeds will only show the subject in the light.

Someone beat me to my usual tips. One thing I will add is get a Lightsphere II photojournalist diffuser. It's a little large, but it works a treat as the Brits say.
