COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS
+ What time of day is best to shoot?
The studio gets amazing natural light throughout the day.
The windows face the east and there are windows that face south
You can diffuse light with long sheer curtains that are provided over the windows if needed or course take them down to allow more light to enter.
Weather plays a huge role in the lighting and we cannot predict what your day will hold. Overall, the natural light in the studio is amazing morning and afternoon and early evening before sundown.
+ Stairs or elevator?
Both. There is an elevator that will take you to the 2nd floor as well as the stairs to the right of the elevator. We have taken a 3 seater couch up both with ease.
