Front sync flash will always give you a subject bright and BG dark picture. Try experimenting with various flash modes, rear sync, slow sync, etc... pump up the ISO slightly and use a longer shutter speed to get more of the BG.

I'm by no means a pro.. but the trick is to use Manual mode with a flash..
up the ISO, open up the aperture and set the shutter speed to your liking..
about 1/20, 1/10 should let enough enough background light in while the flash would freeze the action..


should get something like this..

Bro,

Not too sure how this guy set up his cam and flash. I've tried doing that for my good buddy's party some mths back. All the pics turned out fine. and I was using shutter speeds as fast as 1/60, 1/80, 1/100 etc...

SO personally, External Flash MUST have... Else, just fire your internal flash, but results may not be as good...

No hard and fast rule... You need to depend on the situation.

Everything's back to basics:
Eg: How to capture more ambient light?
- Open your shutter longer
- Wider aperature size (smaller f-stop number)
- Higher ISO
