The wife and I are buying a new house with a finished basement with a Large family room. (21' X 39') The family room is so large that I am going to take a 11' X 21' (interior dimensions) area for an in home studio. 8' ceiling. Due to the landing where the stairs come down that is the most width I can get. The studio will have one centered west window in it. I am thinking of using that end of the studio for my backdrop and the other end for the work station/gear shelves. That will leave me about 18' of shooting room to the backdrop. I like the idea of the backdrop area having the window, in case I would like to do a little natural light stuff. (Yeah I would prefer a north facing window, but don't think the wife will let me have the whole house turned. I would end up with at most, head/ shoulder shooting room with natural light shooting from the width. I guess what I am asking, does it make sense this way or would you use the blank wall for your backdrop wall? I'm not to worried about light leak behind the backdrop as I can install a blackout shade.
