I think I understand what you are saying now. But if the beam in
question originated behind and to the right of the camera, I
would expect the nearer part of the beam to be brighter than the
more distant part.

According to your suggestion, the nearer part would be towards
the right side of the photo, farthest away from the convergence
point of the beams. But the beam is clearly least bright on the
right and becomes progressively brighter towards the center. I
would say this argues against your proposal.

It is, however, consistent with the beam originating from the
left and being deflected at the convergence point before
continuing on to the right. The intensity would be expected to
fall off  as it continued to the right in the more-or-less
frontal plane.
