and the "ambient" light you disdain is a source and quality all its own.

depending on the window's orientation to the sun's track, this may provide a nice soft light all day most of the year.

I don't disdain ambient light at all. I do disdain the idea that it's there even when I don't want it.

I don't know if I'd like to have my clients "on display" as we work; but I could always set the drop with the back to the window.

Probably my biggest concern. And very limiting. Nothing more than PG, for sure. And, with it being an hourly-rental place, much value would be lost having to cart in my own materials and spend time blocking up window space just for some privacy.

I had a friend who rented his studio out to make extra money. Totally different. Plenty of backdrops, lights, modifiers, props, sets, furnishings. A reception area. Black walls and ceiling. Partitions. A sound system. Bathroom with a shower. He charged $45 an hour, just $5 more than this place if you include what they admit are extremely limited equipment. What a difference.

if I mock you, it may be well deserved.
