HI all. Was hoping you might like to share what your :heart: dream studio would comprise of. It sounds like my handy husband is becoming keener to build mine hopefully in the near future. I have designed the layout and cant wait for interior decorating but there are several questions i hope you could help answer. The space is 7.6 x 9metres. I am splitting it in two - studio area / office area. At present my idea is to have 5 x 7.6 for the studio (is this enough?) and the remaining 4 x 7.6 for the office area. I will set the studio up with lights etc. which i know little about yet!(apart from that alien bees sound !!) One of my thoughts is because I love natural light so much, to allow for this in the studio with double glass doors?? (in case Im a total flop at studio lighting)..and have block out curtains for when Im using artificial lighting???? What do you think......??? And would sky-lights (that can be closed off) be a good idea above the shooting area? for even more natural light?? At present I am thinking of going for a polished concrete floor with plain white walls.... any thoughts?? So many questions... really hoping you guys get right into this thread and share what you would do if you were building your :heart: dream portrait studio. Babble and DREAM as much as you like ... Im all ears! Thanks a million in advance, Jem x.
