What was the shutter speed for those shots? That's my biggest issue, the fact that I can't use fast shutters with my current lighting situation and can't stand still to save my life

I'm not sure what the shutter speed was but you can use pretty much whatever shutter speed you want as long as you're using flash in the manner that I was (using flash as your key light) since flash freezes all movement.

This means that you don't have to worry about camera shake when using flash because the subjects being hit with the flash will be tack sharp.

What modifier do you think that I used to get this shot?

Think for a second before scrolling down.

I used no modifiers just plain old off camera flash. You can get good lighting with just flash as well and no modifiers.
