Hi fellow photogs!
The space I have is a 22 feet x 58 feet x 14 feet ceiling. I want to renovate from scratch and would like to learn more about studio photography. The reason being is that there are not that many contemporary studios in Brunei. Infact all the studios here utilise Victorian and Bohemian themed wallpapers and whatnots. I want to create something like Clinic Studio.
I have several questions starting from the build-up to equipment
1) I will have a white paper roller backdrop hung from the ceiling, but the rest of the walls would be painted.
-what colors would be good to be used as background? I'm looking at BLACK, GREY, BRONZE and MAROON.
- and shud the paint flow to part of the floors too? lets say a 5 feet stretch?
2) how do i create reflecting floors? do i use plexiglass? shiny ceramic tiles or is there something that photographers use?
3)this is a question for lighting.
-what would be the best light set to get in this situation assuming i have 2k to spend? i already have 2 lightheads with a variety of umbrellas but they fire only 45w -60w daylight bulbs.
-softbox or umbrellas?
i would be extremely grateful if people can respond to this as i am quite eager to learn the techniques of studio lighting and sadly this is the only way i could taste a real editorial studio.
