    45 degree right of camera: Look at the shadows, not difficult to guess where the flash was. Clockwise it's between 1 and 2 o'clock (if that helps you), half-right, above the head of the boy.
    Umbrella: Look here. The flash fires through the umbrella, the umbrella diffuses the light to make it softer.
    Hope that's clear now. Otherwise check http://strobist.blogspot.com for further readings.
    Thanks for taking the time to explain in detail. Really appreciate it. Will do up more reading on my own. Flash photography still very alien to me

    You can buy the "better beamer" at TK foto. It really does push the light from the flash a lot farther.
