For studio work, you are not carrying it around, so you don't need a light tripod. In that case, the less expensive aluminum tripods would fit your budget. vs. the expensive and lighter carbon fiber tripods.
Then get it used, and save even more.
the problem I was facing is that under the $150 price point: everything seems to be a travel tripod.
Buy the used stuff.
You can get decently good stuff, if you shop.
I would NOT consider the Bogen that I got off Craig's List a travel tripod, for me. It is much too heavy and won't fit into a suitcase. In fact I consider it a studio or "close to car" tripod.
