Thank you so much Russ. I must admit you open insights that could have troubled me if I hadn't tried and fooled with flash as much. What I'm trying to do is hone the result. I realize that on camera flash is flat so the results will only go so far. The need is to roam single handedly with the flash in one hand and the camera in the other is a goal. I want to get good at this because I find that I take a lot of these types of photographs. The night brings out a complex quality in people which is fun to capture.
I was wishy washy about Auto vs. TTL vs. TTL-BL and now I realize that at least TTL will be there in these (night) situations (on camera). Outside in daylight really never worries me because I can ballpark/guess the fill pretty well. In fact daytime I would use a cheaper flash that doesn't even have TTL but forsakes these for simple setting of fractions of full power.
