    Try to get the reflectors down and pointed at the middle of the screen.

    The light is now pointing more towards the center of the screen. Thoughts?

    They are too far. Rig up something so they can be right up against the screen.

    On my way to work, I think I came up with a solution. If it doesn't work out, I'll have to get smaller reflectors. Thank you.

    What do you think? Will this be okay or should I try smaller reflectors?
