I used my SB600 flash with my Lumiquest Bouncer for fill light and took shots with 2 lenses. I tried out my 70-300 VR at 70mm to see how good the Bokeh (This is how the out of focus background looks - never want it to be too distracting) was and then slipped on the 50mm f/1.4 which I stopped down to f/4.0 due to fact that they weren't all sitting straight. Kimmy was much farther forward and I was on a slight angle.
I shot from below to get more of the trees and less of the deck - looked better when I checked in the LCD.
I can't say enough about the Lumiquest bouncer - I use the Lumiquest Velcro strap to attach it to my flash and it really does a great job especially when you don't have a ceiling or reflector. Amazingly - no one blinked - which is a big symptom with at least grandma and mom (Sue) while the kids tend not blink so much. I think the bouncer helps with that too. (Note - none of the photos have been edited - still having laptop issues)
