comment What is the best way to trigger a canon 550 EX speedlite in a studio
I found strobist 102 much more informative than 101 and its not intended as a "next level" but more as a replacement for 101.

This is good advice, I often recompose a shot of my child so that the background is further away (if the shallow depth of field is what I'm going for).

comment Does a flash work well with regular alkaline batteries?
Having an SB-600, the information is pretty on par with my personal usage (attempting to take into account the fact that I rarely do a full pop).

By the way, the DOF still is rather thin - your background my not have the blur you want, but its still "clearly" out of focus.

comment What is Rembrandt lighting, and when do I use It?
These are great examples and inspired me to try a lighting on the background similarly. Thanks!
