Could you specify what tips you are looking for?

Otherwise:

1. Get someone to shoot a picture of.

2. Put an 85mm lens on your camera.

3. Place the strobe above camera level, centered or slightly off-center.

4. Meter the light correctly and adjust correctly.

5. Shoot.

The closer you put the light to the subject, the more contrasty and "artificial" it will look (which can look very nice.

The higher you put the light, the more shadows you get on cheeks and from the nose and below the eyebrows. And the less of a reflection you can see in the eyes.

I'm not a big fan of the grid, but well, check it out.
