All other things being more or less equal (flooring, walls, square footage, etc), and 99% of your work is fashion/beauty and portraits, both natural light and studio light, and you work at all different times of day, which would you prefer:
1. A studio with a large, 8' x 9' south or west facing window, set about 3 feet up off the floor; or
2. A studio with no window but a pretty large skylight (like, 7' x 7' or thereabouts) that is pyramid shaped (jutting out of the roof).
#1 is my current space - 525 square feet, hardwood floor, one long brick wall, one long white wall with the window at the end - and there may be an opportunity in the coming months to move into a new space that is more like #2. I'm just kind of daydreaming out loud and curious what other people would prefer.
