From the previous post, we hope you’ve been able to understand the numerous Benefits of a Premium Studio For Your Shoot. In this episode, we’ll discuss studio size. Is bigger actually better?
Now, you’ve gotten your camera, lights and other necessary equipment, you’ve completed your photography training and piece by piece your dream is becoming reality, but wait, it’s time to get your studio. In fact, you’re thinking to yourself, do I really need a studio or do I just want one? Well, that doesn’t matter now, you want a studio and you’re getting one.
A lot of times when artists are asked if they have a studio space, the first thing they say is “well, I’ve got this basement at home and I think it will do just fine”. But after analysis has been made, it turns out the space just isn’t enough for the job. Right now the question is “does size really matter when it comes to creating a studio?
Now let’s take a look at what a studio entails. A studio as explained or defined in the previous post is the work space for an artist. In a studio- at least a standard one, there must be a photography or photo shoot room which strictly serves only that purpose. The photoshoot room is where the actual job of image taking takes place. Here you have lights, cameras, necessary furniture, the stage in general. The closest distance between the camera and subject is at least 12 feet, and now we are just talking portrait.
Apart from the photoshoot room, you have the editing or production room. After all the images has been taken, the final results of the picture comes from the production room. This is where all the editing work is being done. In this room you have computers, chairs, equipment needed for the work. This room should be kept comfortable enough for the artist to work without distractions.
The storage is where all the stuff not in use is being kept. This is a separate room on its own. The dressing room, is where the subject can change before taking pictures and clothes can be tried out. Make-up for the model is also done in this room. In the studio building is also the reception, toilet, bathroom, space, space and some more space.
Evidently, you need enough space for all these rooms to exist, so yes, the bigger the studio, the better. In video production, the studio should be big enough to contain whatever scene is required by the artist. Some top LA studios are big enough to contain a replica of the Whitehouse.
A spacious studio gives you room to comfortably create whatever scenery you desire. It’s being rumored that a location as large as a city is being set aside as a video production location and will contain replica of popular landmarks such as the Eiffel tower, the learning tower, the Egyptian pyramids and many more.
Maybe now you’re thinking, I don’t have that much space, do I just pack up? No, not yet, depending on the kind of job you’re doing, a small space could be used. A photoshoot for just basically portraits wouldn’t require space as large as the Sahara desert. You basement can work. The consequence only is that you don’t have enough room to express your creativity.
However, in LA, studios are being rented out with enough space and necessary equipment so you don’t have to boggle your mind about space. All you do is find one with exactly the size you require and book them. https://apexphotostudios.com/booking-photostudio/ you can book ours in LA.
