What seems to work best for this scenario is mounting my strobes back about 9' to 12" which also brings them in. My reason for moving them back is to cut the extreme intensity in the region between the lens and the subject and thus reduce featruring the particles in this area. Perhaps angling them out would also help.
What also helps is accepting that my goal is to only paint the subject with light in the center area of the frame i.e. not attempt to light the whole frame. This goal produces good results in most cases, the exception being full frame subjects e.g. ships engine rooms, propellers, and reef structure shots.
