There are 3 ways to use
You can either choose each point randomly to build up a
Or choose a subject or any other point as the static point

main topic, you could select various combinations of lens, style, light
etc to make dozens of different images of the same subject. This will
give you good practice focusing on the topic of Fire as a subject in all

choose different points to go with each photo. So Soft style with
different subjects, focal lengths, light and so on. This will give you
good practice focusing on Soft images as a style in all its aspects.
