Not sure what you mean by off light photography. Do you mean no flash? If so use a higher ISO and a wider apeture if possible.

I am going to hazard a guess and suggest you mean "off camera flash". There are many tutorials on the net for this including This One on this site.

Also try This Video for tips.

There are also a couple of strobist groups on ephotozine that you can join for tips and to upload your photos.

So first you need a separate flash (speedlite), you either need a cord or a radio trigger between them. Some event photographers use a flash bracket to hold the flash to one side of the camera.

If you use a radio trigger you can position the light on a stand or have a helper hold it. Look at "shoot through umbrellas" to soften the light.

good luck
