Do you mean naturel light or flash?

Go to the strobist site - loads of advice. Probably small off camera flash is the best route in.

Your camera probably has a fill-in flash mode (fill-in flash is using flash in conjunction with another light source, usually daylight). I'd suggest messing about with that before trying anything more ambitious.

Type in Dave Black to yahoo be warned it will cost you loads of money for me he is the best with hotshoe flash for sports photography, Look in ON THE ROAD AND AT THE RANCH, yes guested it he is a yank, otherwise Joe Mcnally is another great with hotshoe flash set ups.
