Whew, finally found a moment to post after watching little whirlwind all weekend. Here is dear grandson after he snuck into poppa's recliner - he's waiting for poppa to return.
Used the flash this time:
Speedlite 430EX II set to bounce off white ceiling
Camera Rebel Xsi set to lower exposure of flash by 1/3-stop
Meter mode: spot
Camera handheld - no time for tripod
Update: This morning after I had a chance to really review the EXIF info from all the photos taken this weekend, I see the flash didn't fire even though it was turned on for the photo I originally posted. Guess the flash batteries were getting worn out. I automatically assumed the flash worked on every photo that turned out as the corner of the house where we were taking photos is very dark. Since my photo this week is supposed to be an example of using artificial light, in my case flash, I'm replacing the photo with one where the flash did fire. Thanks to everyone who commented on the original photo and sorry if I've caused any confusion.
