I'm excited beyond words. Eleven-hundred square feet. Signed a lease last Thursday, and started build-out this weekend. I plan to paint walls/floor pure white in one area, for High-Key shooting - Matte Black walls/floor in another area for Low-Key. Nice seating area with couch/loveseat that will double as a shooting area. Third, more-flexible shooting area. Area for prop/file storage.
Hope to have it ready for shooting in two weeks.
No office space or anything, since my law office is only four blocks away and is much nicer than I would spend on my hobby.
Forgive the image quality. Just some snapshots before heading home to mow the grass.

Congratulations opn your new studio. I remember my first studio ... just a big cinderblock space, but in my mind ... it was my new clubhouse ... my fort ... my treehouse ... my everything! Please continue to post progress pictures so we can all live vicariously through you!

I wish you luck with your new space. I would love to have a place to keep my stuff at but I just can't swing the exspence right now. The little money I make right now would not be enough to cover all the costs. Someday it will happen.. Good luck with yours ..

Mike

Looks to me like you have a lot of potential there!! I love the idea of the white and black areas, I personally think that would be a terrific place to play! Best of luck!

Consider putting in a "cync" or "sweep" (same thing, different name) on the white at least. You can buy flexible plastic or fiberglas and build a small frame to eliminate the line where the floor meets the wall. A little sheet rock mud and some paint, and the line disapears. You will be glad you did. Another way to get a white seamless is to look at flooring stores at their cheap linoleum...turn it over and see if you have a nice matte white finish. Use that side in the studio and you can wash it and roll it up when not in use. Also, go to the local lumber yard and check out the newer panelling. Some of the brick and rock panels are getting pretty believable now and make neat mobile floors and walls.
I have been in my studio space for 22 years, and I am constantly moving stuff around. Arkie

I need some input from y'all. Should I paint the white area (hi-key) with glossy or flat white paint? I'm pretty sure that flat/matte is the right answer for the black space, but the white has me puzzled.

Thanks.

I'd go with matte white and black. If you use a glossy white, you'll start to pick up shine and hot spots from your lights ... unless you like that look.
