    There's no one fixed method, that is why the word creative comes to play. Anyway the eBook about using FV Lock to Lock in the Speedlight and preventing further pre-flashes is interesting.

    for background, tweak ISO and shutter speed..
    If managing a camera that has good ISO noise control. No issue. In fact, it is a breeze. What abt cameras with poor ISO control?

    Not every photographer would have somebody to follow. Most of the time alone. As what Azul suggested, not very practical although gd idea.

    By the way, Jeanie, u dun sound like a super newbie.

    for low lights, use bounce, then put a slave flash behind the subjects.
    so that when you fire, the background behind the subjects will be lit.the power of the flash of course could be varied on the slave itself.

    i would prefer high ceilings though.anyway, for background to be more lit, just slow the shutter speed to about 1/30s.
    then again you'll have the 'orangy background with flash lit subjects.
    Ken rockwell suggested using flash gels to match the colors.
    meit mei, don't make the shoot become so complicated. nobody is gonne wait for you to fiddling around the set up.

    Sounds like taking fireworks sia. Never thought of using this technique . Theoretically, i dun think it will work cause there will always be pp at the bg unless bg is totally empty, then it may work.

    To get even lighting, use Lumiquest softbox if the ceiling is too high.
    http://www.lumiquest.com/lq925.htm

    An alternative is to use a white card.

    To correct the colour temrperature, use an orange filter (CTO) on your flash to make it tungsten temperature. Set your camera WB to tungsten, then everything would be correct. You can't change the colour temperature of the lighting in the venue but you can change the colour temperature of your flash with filters.
