I need some help with light positioning. What I run into is the softboxes or stands encroach my frame.
I've done three setups and work around this encroachment as best I can. Mostly I'm photographing pets at ground level, but has also applied to people when sitting on a stool or standing. The closer the box, the softer the light, the more this equipment keeps getting in the way. I think I'm putting the boxes a foot above subject, but small animals on the floor, I lay down and can have problems with these things getting in the frame.
1) Boxes camera left and camera right
2) 1 box left or right for main and 1 box middle for fill
3) 1 box middle with reflectors on sides
I just purchased a stand with boom arm and am playing with that now. Figured this would be used for when I want the light in the middle.
The lens most used is 70-200 so I'm back away from the subject.
Anyone have any photos of these setups? I've not been successful searching for examples of what I need to see to understand placement to avoid this setup.
Suggestions please. Thanks.
