You got a studio set up? Small, big? Show us how it looks like!

Where did you get the backdrop? What kind is it?

Thanks

It's a10'x24' "Maple Walnut" muslin backdrop by Civichrome from Amvona (Maroon, Brown, Rust and Cream handpainted). Behind it (hidden) is a 10'x20' "Boston Gardens" muslin backdrop, also by Civichrome from Amvona (Pastel Blue, Purple, Yellow and Cream handpainted). Got these very cheap on eBay some years ago.

Well at least your not living in Japan which probably has the smallest rooms of any country. If you had a place over there I think it would be impossible to create a studio unless you lived within it.

Sorry to revive a dead post, but --

You'd actually be really surprised! Many/most apartments outside of downtown Tokyo are actually quite nice, my apartment here is larger than my last one in the States. I'll set it up for 'Studio' today and pop some photos.

The biggest issue is Japan has relatively low ceilings - think 7' at max.

Thanks. I see they no longer deal in photography stuff.

Is that plywood for the floor? I need something solid to put on top of carpet, and that looks like it could work. I'm assuming that folds up and stores away?

It's 4' x 8' MDF at 3/4" thick (2 pieces). It's actually better than plywood because plywood tends to almost always have some bow to it. MDF board is super flat and straight and also has a good amount of weight to it which helps prevent the pieces from moving around. I've just taped the joints to pull them tight together.

Rushmore - I'm super jelly of your studio. You've got so much space to move around whereas I was forced to make mine work in a portion of my home. I also envy the fact that you have solid floors :P

Congrats. That's a great space for natural light. So many options. What do you do when shooting strobes and don't want any ambient?

ISO 50 and leaf shutter kill any ambient. There actually isn't enough light to shoot the Phase in there without strobes.

My plan is MFD for strobe stuff, and 35mm for natural light.

I would murder for a space like that.

High ceilings.

Gloss floor.

School Radiator/brick walls for props.

Perfect photography studio.
