Mic With Your Ears, Not Your Eyes

Great Articale on Mic placement…

Mic With Your Ears, Not Your Eyes
When placing microphones, make sure you’re placing it where the instrument sounds the best and not where the microphone looks the best.
Often, a young engineer will start to position microphones based on what they see done by others or read in a magazine. Sometimes they experiment and move the mics to see if the sound improves, but usually once someone ends up with a mic setup they like they stop trying to improve it.

There are certain standard approaches that have been successful, but even these approaches should never be considered “etched in stone”. 

Always experiment, especially if it just means putting up a second mic to try a new position without moving the mic you are already happy with.
