A second flash can light up behind them and make a nice halo behind their
heads if shined to their backs from behind them. Kind of like a separation
light. I saw this done at a fancy event in LA I went to and then did it
myself when I shot a BLACK AND WHITE BALL in Portland.
You just get someone to walk around with the flash and train them on where
to point it.
You don't have them shine it also on the fronts of people.
