I searched but could not find the answer I was looking for.
We recently moved to a new home with a large great room I am going to use as
a studio, it has 20ft vaulted ceilings with lots of windows and lots of ambient light.
Should I cover my windows when shooting? How dark should a studio be?
What type of shooting will you be doing?
If you're doing portraiture, heck, embrace the natural light and use it to your advantage.
If you're doing table top, product, commercial type shooting, you'll probably want less natural light so you aren't fighting reflections and such coming from the windows.
Can you come up with a workable solution so you can have the room lit either way? Blackout shades? Black fabric panels that fit the windows?
If your great room is anything like the ones I've seen in new model homes out here in AZ, I envy you...
