    Using a dynamic microphone, I typically adjust the singer so they are facing 180 degrees opposite magnetic North. This is so the magnetic "pull" on the dynamic element will be equal in all directions and be "pulling" to the front of the element to ensure proper phase, since it would be facing magnetic North. I usually use condenser microphones on female lead vocalists. The reason being, females tend to emit heat and pheromones which typically tranfers the heat to the plates of the condenser/capacitor plates making them become closer spaced... thus increasing gain.
