Studio Camera Rooms
« on: May 26, 2011, 12:29:02 AM »
I have been in the same studio space for six years.  It has 14 foot ceilings, and has been ideal for shooting in.  Due to financial reasons, I am moving out of that space in June.  I have found a possible new space with a great layout and plenty of space, but it has 8 foot ceilings.  Does anyone shoot with large softboxes and backdrops in a camera room with 8 foot ceilings?  If so, do you have a hard time when shooting seniors or families in standing poses?  Is it difficult to keep the ceiling out of the shot?  Any info you could share, good or bad, would be greatly appreciated.  I love this space, but don't want to regret the move! :-). Thanks!

I don't do a lot in studio myself, but 8ft seems a little low, though I'm sure you'll get by. 8ft should be enough to keep space above heads. Though to be sure maybe you should setup a backdrop under and 8ft ceiling and see how it feels.
