How to build a studio from scratch
Here's an unusual question:
I am adding on to my urban attached NYC townhouse, and I am thinking of constructing a workable studio on top of my 3rd story roof. (I'm a street photographer, but I would like to do more studio shots of artistic photography.)
How do I find out how to specify this new space?
Where I would like to build has a northern exposure, and cannot be more than about 18' wide on the inside. How tall and deep should I make it? How much glass should I put in to use natural light. What kind of finishes should the space have.
By now, you might be guessing that I've never actually used a photographic studio, although I know my way around the D800, multiple Nikon flashes and tripods.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
