Elliot is absolutely right. Everything is written as relative to camera position or axis of camera to subject. This is all side-lit with on axis fill.

The camera position has absolutely nothing to do with the positions of the lighting.

The conventional way to describe lighting placement is from the point of view of the camera. E.g. a rim light will become a front light, if you shoot from behind the model.
