I would think lighting would always be different if you are doing modeling or portrait shots. Light, or light voids, creates mood. Are you doing specialized shoots where mood doesn't vary?
I have only had the studio 2 months, so I have not maximized its capabilities as yet. I have been shooting white background. I have black background and realized that it was challenging to light. I am going to explore some creativity with black, and I am going to color gels as my next step.
I am still tweaking the studio and figuring out my lighting setup. I want to move my backdrop lights to wall mounted lights, but I need to be certain of their positions before I mount them permanently.
The studio is still pretty new, so I do not want to start jumping around before I become an expert at the basic white background setup.

You would be better off using an ND filter than going to 50. You lose some dynamic range when you go to ISO 50.
After I said that, I realized that ISO 50 is limiting the camera, because it is a 'virtual' push of the exposure to get ISO 50. I will play with my light settings to get somewhere around ISO 200 or so.
Haha, more to purchase . I know the Lee filter kit is highly recommended, its on my long term to-buy list.
