I cleaned up the garage, installed insulation, and am putting in drywall this weekend. It's perfect for a studio - 22 feet long, 13 foot ceilings, 14 feet wide. To be painted all white... Converted photography studio/man cave. I'll be glad to send pictures (with the new Mark III of course) when I'm done if anyone is interested.
Just a quick suggestion... if your making a photo studio, paint your walls black... That way you wont have light bounce/wrap around/flare by unintentional light bouncing off the white walls uncontrolled. Black walls absorbs the stray light and you can make sure only light that you want to hit your subject/background/etc is present. This becomes even more important with high key shots because light bounces around so much off backgrounds/walls/etc it can easily get out of control if your not careful.
That sounds like a great recommendation. It might be hard to get permission from the GF to paint the walls black (flat black i'm guessing), since changing the color down the road from black is rather difficult. Maybe I'll go with a black muslin curtain system. That I could do. Thoughts on a 12' long black muslin curtain system that I can extend around the parameter of this garage and do on the cheap? My 5D mark III should be coming this weekend so a curtain system sounds quicker to me than lots of painting.
