I realize that most of our problems are the opposite, but I would love to hear some thoughts and comments on the mic being too close to the subject. I generally operate on the basic principle of 'camera perspective' informing my decision. But Robert had an intriguing comment (thank you RPSharman) in another thread, stating: "with some of the mics we use today, the frame line might be too close". On an episodic I did recently, there were several ECUs (faces only), where I had the MKH50 at the frame line for some intimate lines. I was half crazed from cicadas, and was glad to get the damn thing in there like that. I thought the signal was amazing. I could practically hear the presence of blood pulsing through jugulars, etc. Could I have had the 50 too close? How close is too close? Subjective subject, I know.
