maria-

Did you use an external flash or the built-in flash for these photos? Thanks in advance for your answer.

Sarah,

Nope, still just the built in flash....and as usual I forgot my home-made diffuser.

PS: The place was so dark that most of the videos I took turned out way darker than I expected they would.

Maria-

Thanks. I presumed you had used the built-in flash, due to foreground burn-out, or over exposure. That can really easily be prevented with an external flash. See my example below:

Is it just a case of plugging the external flash in and everything is fixed, or is there some extra technique involved?

Sarah,

On the second photo I put the camera into Party SCN mode and was able to capture the green stage light on the musician and the equipment. With the flash it is pretty hard to capture the ambiance of the stage lights. Any suggestions on what setting I should pay attention to that would help me capture the colors and ambiance on stage without getting a grainy photo?

Sarah, what is this sample showing, the head has been photoshopped onto a different image?! You regularly profess to our new members that you are a photoshop instructor but this is, well, I have no words. In the original size it can be seen even more so, not only the head crop but the removal of something in the background that is just choppy (above left of the head) how can you use this as an example of how to use an external flash to not blow out something closer to the camera; looking at the catch lights there are also more than a single light source as well?

The full size is http://anchorse.smugmug.com/Other/So...4NAvT-O-LB.jpg
