I have tried to dolly the camera back and forth, turning of and on "fixed / looking through camera" - NOTHING :-( My Geometry is STILL behind the image plane!
What am i doing wrong?
I had the same problem...
See this tutorial - http://www.digitaltutors.com/11/training.php?vid=7270
select images plane (view/image plane/image plane attributes)... then in the properties under placement click in depth then hold control and drag with right mouse button to slide the image forward and backward from your camera till it is behind your geometry.
