Would some of you fine folks please tell me how to take a decent picture of my extended family over the holidays.

Usually take the pics in a small living room (13x20)
2 to 3 rows of people on the end of the room
1 sb800 speedlight-usually on camera
The problem is always, 1st row too bright,2nd row pretty close to nice,and 3rd row underexposed.
Straight on flash is the worst.
Ceiling bounce helps but still is not great.
Wondering if a Gary Fong would help cover all three rows, or is this strictly a studio light situation?

All advice is greatly appreciated

Thank You
David S.
