i use this w 85mm 1.4 for portraits and am curious how to manually set the zoom on the flash.

Looked at manual but hard to make sense of.

I know probably better to diffuse the light but am thinking about backing away from subject and use flash to highlight the subject and separate better from the background. Maybe also helpful in balancing light for sunset-on-the-beach shots from a little distance (?).
