Re: Advice to shoot a party with flash.

I agree with the previous poster. If I can't use bounce flash, I just use direct on-camera flash with a high enough ISO and slow enough shutter speed so the background won't be dark.

Filtering the flash to the ambient color temperature is a nice tweak.

I've seen other photographers (not me) use a small softbox on the strobe head, or even use the softbox/strobe head off camera with a coiled sync cord. Too awkward in crowded situations, IMO, but an option.
