    There's only one way around this and it requires extra light to balance that bit of the scene. I'd recommend either a reflector, or a ring flash depending on your budget!

    There probably isn't one specific to your camera, but if it has a lens screw filter, then you could just put one on from another brand and trigger it with a shoe connector.

    Looks like i will just have to get around it with a relfector setup of some sort because my lense has no screw type fittings like this :banghead:

    Have you thought about a slave flash. These can be held over the subject and will fire when your camera flash fires.

    Just a simple thought, you are taking them without a lens hood right? sometimes the simple things can be overlooked. :D
