I've just about mastered getting reasonable results with my EOS300D with 550EX for indoor shots of my little girl. Basically I nearly always have the camera in manual mode, large f stop and the shutter around 100-125 second. However I was unimpressed with the harsh light and shadows I was getting, so I started angling the head at about 45 degrees with the flap thingy extended. The results were better, but not as good as I'd hoped for so I've purchased an Omni-Bounce to see if that'll improve things. The following image is with the camera in manual, shutter at 125, f5, ISO 100, Omni-bounce fitted and flash angled at 45 degrees. I was amazed how dark it was, it wasn't much better with +1 FEC dialled in, any ideas, guidance?
My only thought is I might have been a bit close, was about 4-5 feet away (guess)
