    Currently my studio is white but I have been thinking about switching to all black to knock down on reflective light for better control, any thoughts on this? Is your studio black or white?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    The walls in mine are beige (not something over which I have control). If I only had a choice between black or white, I would definitely go with black, but my preference would be for a neutral gray.

    Black is too stark for the long term, IMO.

    Black is my first choice. Anything brighter than dark gray becomes a control issue. And tinted colors introduce white balance problems.
