When you say "main flash" you mean the built-in flash on the camera, I assume? What did you use for a diffuser. I use an FZ-1, and was wondering what I can use to diffuse the internal flash when using the slave. Thanks in advance. The lighting is nice and flat on those pictures. No hotspots at all. Did you bounce the slave off the ceiling?

On the slave, I did a 360 degree head turn at a 45 degree angle bounce off the wall.

As for the built-in flash, yes I use it. The diffuser I used came free with the Nikon SU-4 slave controller.

It is basically a hotshoe attachment that has a piece of white semi clear plastic that folds over the built-in flash when used. It allow you to take direct pictures w/o that flashspot.

What you could do if you don't have that diffuser is to use aluminum foil and create a bounce layer for that built-in flash, that will work too. I've used it before on my fish tank shot.
