Flash noob, flashpoint Evolve 200

So I just picked up a FP Evolve 200 and R2 pro transmitter, and I just received them today.

My only experience with flash has been on camera flash, so I'm trying to figure out how to best use this unit.

I was messing around with it with just the fresnel head, fresnel head with barn doors, and bear bulb heads without any other modifiers and I'm wondering when you would use the barn doors, or the fresnel head alone without any sort of umbrella or octobox ?

I did some shots around the house and it seems the light its very focused even when using just the fresnel head without the barn doors.

I kind of like how small the Evolve 200 is but if it always has to be used with a 30" modifier than that sort of negates its compact size.

Am I missing a certain application, or method of use in which you could use the Evolve 200 with just the Fresnel head ?

Again I'm a flash noob so no explanation or input can be too basic for me
