Use Big Mama Apperture lens
I love the bounce card!
Usually, I would use the built in bounce card on the SB900 for portrait shots. If I am using a wide angle lens to take group photos, then I use a diffuser.

big mama aperture lens would be my choice
Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.
I actually have a photoshop format of the DIY bounce card.Can just adjust the size,print out and paste it on a harder board and you have your own DIY bounce card.
Anyone need the format can PM me you email address.
But I also added a card to the back of my flash as "fill in".
Bounce card! It's awesome.
I used to use only the omnibounce.
Now I'm also using the flash reflector, like this:
nice reflector.. what material are you using for it? what are the dimensions?
Actually I've been making a few reflectors myself but I find it a bit impractical? It looks totally weird when out in the public and more often than not people around me go "wtf?!" when they see my reflectors. I spoke to a professional photographer recently who covered my brother's wedding and he said thats why he's using a stofen, looks better, though it cuts some power.
Anyone of you have similar experience?
Capture your memories, for they are not forever.
Dimage sells something this flash reflector in Mass Order sub-forum (I think)..
You can also get it from http://www.artworkfoto.com/.
Omni bounce seems to work fine with me
bounce card with velcro ... works wonders ...

RGB Metering & Focusing.
there's really no 1 solution to this but for me in general
if the room is small enough with white walls around, I'd flag the flash with black foam & bounce the flash to the walls in the direction I want the light to light my subject from, this gives me a "directed" natural soft light effect. Bouncing to ceiling is often found to give a flat lighting to the subject, they are soft but flat (but at times this is an option too, remember, there's not 1 solution for all)
if the room is too big our night outdoor where it is not possible to bounce the flash, I use a white foam bought from a artshop & cut to half then attached with rubber band like some of the CSers here, cheap & effective.
just my 2c
