I’m very excited to have given my photography studio a little makeover, which didn’t cost much, but made a huge difference in the overall look of the studio, and how much easier I can keep it clean, and organized. For those who have not been here for a shoot, my studio is a detached 2 car garage that’s a simple, but functional studio, with heat and air conditioning I love the high ceilings and rafters, makes clamping strobes easy, and opens up floor saving possibilities for rim and hair, and even background lighting. When I first moved into it, it had wood veneer paneling on the walls, and plain concrete floor. I decided to spruce it up and empty it out, paint and finish it, and organize it so I make better and more efficient use out of my space.
So I started with painting the 2 side walls flat dark gray, to add lighting contrast, where white can give a softer light when reflected, dark colors absorb light. I painted the front and back walls flat white. I scrubbed the concrete floor with muriatic acid and water, and when it dried, I applied a one part slate gray epoxy on the floor. It looks SO much better. Soon my friend will help me build a cyc / infinity wall on the back to allow for less use of seamless paper, and reduce setup time. I look forward to many more years of fantastic work and fun in my studio….it’s the place to come for modeling and commercial headshots, business headshots, boudoir photography, and other portrait work as well.
