studio size?

Discussion in 'Studio Equipment and Lighting' started by P'Cola-Roy, May 1, 2007.

  1. I am going to partition off my garage. Everything that I do has to be reversible, so I don't intend on removing my garage door or anything else.

    I can make the room 9'6" by 15'. I have found some booms to mount on the walls and ceiling to hold lights to save room. Is it worth the effort to try to utilize a room this size? If it is big enough I would love to be able to leave my lights and BG up permanently. It would definately mean more pictures would be taken.

    Any ideas and suggestions for the room/studio welcome.

    Hi Roy, thanks for posting, I am in the same boat er, garage. Difference is, if I can't remove my gear from the main house, I may have to live there too, so mine would be a permanent fix :)

    Just don't know if that size would be suitable for more than just 1-2 individuals at a time.

    I think that space is perfectly useable. Height is more important in many ways - I wish I had 12 ft ceilings. My 'studio' is about 12x12 and I struggle to get full length. Your additional 3' will be very useful.

    Thanks. I will proceed full steam ahead with my petition to have my own space :)
  5. Thanks John.
  6. I think John and I are the same person. Ceiling height is much more important that floor size. Distance can be limiting but height can be crippling.

    hey Roy

    Look for a roll out canvas awning to increase your shooting space with the garage door open? maybe might add some space, could work?
    Just a thought...

  10. I plan on adding one of those freestanding AC units and carpet, so it has to be a solid wall. I'm going to do it right. Even plan on pre-wiring for the wired AB 4 channel remote.
