If you were going to build a studio....


Recommended Posts

There some subjects that I like to shoot with dark background, while others with a bright one. If I had one room, I would paint 2 walls very light grey (almost white), and the other 2 a very dark shade of blue/green (something similar to what Monica Sigmon has in her studio). I would add a light rail to reduce clutter. I wouldn’t add any decorations, as I would like change props every session. A closet or a storage room to save those props, lights, accessories, etc. would be nice. Finally I would use grey wood for flooring. With a neutral color, I avoid color casting and unnecessary light bouncing around.
