1) For the Retra to be most effective, make sure the output from the focus light is a concentrated circle(or whatever shape you use). Then what you see is what you get from the strobe output.
2) The way to get high success/hit rate is to get the guide to aim the strobe for you. Then you concentrate on settings and composing. Need to teach the guide how to hold though.
