Then you need this book in your library. This is Stobist Info Your Guide to Flash Photography

It is 50 lovely photos with pull back photos showing how he set up the lighting. A good chapter on what you need and why you need/want it.

Thanks Volt for the reference - I need to learn more about my flash and ways to use it better - and I'm always in favor of pull-backs (very visual learner).
