as i am just the intern i wasn't actualy setting them up myself, but i'm sure i would never have thought about switching them if i was in control of the pose. i need to start paying close attention to small details like that so i can improve my photos and maybe make suggestion of my own
Not to worry; I did have the reservation with your mentor regarding his indoor flash photography, but no one's perfect. Not even I; I'm just harder on myself and probably others. The questions you should keep asking yourself afterwards are: "What did I do right?" and "What did I do wrong?". The wrongs are harder to identify, but these small things do matter, especially when it comes to lighting. Keep a list of these and you'll soon develop your own style. Good luck - and the original is the pick of the lot; you didn't need to PP.
