Hi all,
I thought that it would be a good idea to see pictures of some existing studio setups. (your studio included!)

That would help a lot of people in the forum to get an idea of how to build the perfect studio.

I would especially like to see some pictures of studios using light railing systems but if you are not currently using one, please don't make that stop you from posting a picture (or more) of your studio.

If you don't want to post it here and you preffer to email it to me please feel free to do so.

Cheers,


Tassos Makrakis

Ok, here's mine . . . . . . .

I know it's just a dirt lot now, but next week it'll be a 20' x 12' studio. I know I posted this before, but it's almost time and I'm getting excited to finally have a place to work!

There's a few pictures of studios in this thread (external link) over on FM... the thread's at 100 pages right now, i'm told it's an invaluable read, but set aside a day or so to get through the whole thing.

Sweet, I bet you are excited. I have a studio in the storefront of a commercial building I own. The storefront is about 30 x 50 the studio room is 12 x 20 approx. Probably just a hair bigger. The sad part is that it seems soooo much bigger until you start adding things into the room (background stands, lights, reflectors etc.) Now I kinda wished I made it bigger. I'll post some photos of it.

Indeed. Another thing to be sure to do is to download the PDFs that are linked somewhere about 2/3 of the way through it, to get all of the photos of setups at the beginning of the thread that are no longer available.

I'm still getting equipment together, but will probably start with something in the garage next year. I've got a light, and waiting on a reflector and stands (next week) as well as starting to look around for backgrounds and a stand for those.

Pitbul - yeah, I would have like to make it bigger, and we actually had the room to go longer, but other family members didn't want to see it out the patio door and another, reasonably so, didn't want it in front of the bedroom window. So, 12' x 20' it is. Hey, I'm thankful to have any size place to work. I got my ABs over a month ago and have had no where to set em' up.

I'll post pics of it's progress. anybody have suggestions as to what color to paint the inside? It will be raw lumber all around.

Pixi - Funny . . . I was thinking of calling it " The Studio Out Back". Get it . . Outback. (sorry still tired from a late nite NYE, It was funnier as I typed, but now, not so much, I should probably just erase this part, but then there's highlighting, and hitting the delete button, and that's just too much work. But then again, wouldn't it be easier than typing all of this?

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!

I do have plans to get another light but really it has been working out great so far for me.
