Started to construct a new Studio, it’s a two story with basement!
Basement Height is 10 ft for lighting.

1. Do others feel ten feet is suitable if lighting is on tracks?
2. Has any one used movable wall backdrops? I wont to put up runners to support a verity of back drops has any one seen or dun this if so what lighting problems if any have you seen?
First floor will have stander 8 ft ceiling Each Room will be 20’’ x 20’’ Two bedrooms A Living room, Den & kitchen Plus 3 bathroom settings.
1. Any ideas on what type of fixed lighting should be used to supplement lighting? Plain on maximizing natural light with large windows.

The second floor all walls are 10 ft with cathedral ceiling again there is the lighting problems there will be skylights plus large windows and glass sliding doors. Being from Michigan we do not get a lot of sun year round.

1. Just looking for some help working with High ceilings fluorescent or incandescent?
There will be a indoor pool as well same thing on lighting.
Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated!

It sounds truly excellent, just a couple of comment. The 10 ft ceilings will probably work, but are a bit low for a track system, 12 or 14 ft ceilings would be better. Mine had 14 ft celings in the shooting area, which allowed ample room for both tracks and for bouncing light off of the ceiling, flooding the entire shooting area with flat, even light.

I had one 8x10 ft plywood 'moving wall' set on rollers, strong enough to lean on, but easy to move with one hand. I also used a rack which supported five roll sof backgrond paper and/or fabrics backgrounds. There wre no particular unusual issues.

The skylights should give a very nice, soft light, which I see as a plus rather than a problem. I would however recommend a moveable cover to black them out for other lighting t4echniques.

I would strongly recommnend incandescent rather than flourescent for overall lighting, but tht's probably a personal thing. Sounds like an excellent studio!

I thought that A 12-foot ceiling in the basement would work better, Just for the spread of the elimination so has not to have hot spots, and the basement is the cheapest room to put up!
As for covers on Skylights I all ready order them with sunscreen and shades screens and all will open as well the 2ed floor will have 32 installed in groups of 4!Each is 24’’x 48’’.
The basement Hole will be dug on next Monday so I call the Co doing that for me and have them dig it a little deeper.
Not that it has anything to do with the studio but the walls are 12 inches and will have max number of windows on the south side and West Side my best natural lighted side.

Thank You for the input!
