    I usually lay it on top of the bellows near the lens. My studio camera has a very wide bellows.

    I buy modern gaff tape and it seems a bit more user friendly.

    Yeah, never meant to be left on. Even lo-tack painters tape which is designed to come off easily leaves a mess is left too long.

    The cheap clamps you can find online (I bought this one on Amazon) with a 1/4-20 stud or threaded hole work well with a flash cold shoe. I used a ball head cold shoe and it can be oriented a bunch of different ways. I can clamp this to most of my view cameras or to the tripod if need be. It only takes a second to install or remove it.

    You could also mount the cold shoe to a small light stand and place it next to the lens. Either way, no modification to the camera would be required.

    Please forgive the poor cell phone capture....
