Studio f/11: Spaces
Upstairs, 9 is the main studio, 8 is the model room.
Downstairs, 4 is as you can see the Alcove Room, and the Long Room is 3 + 2 and the un-numbered space with if desired a stance in 6.
The blue room is tall and has a water-resistant floor. It has a painted white corner. A large paddling pool is available.
Sunshine illuminates a wall in the Model Changing Room in some afternoons and may be useful for a set.
In spring to autumn you'd find the mews lane outside and our big white wall useful and a walk around the neighbourhood offers several useful spots.

- has a 6 metre shooting axis (and some shorter ones)
- 2.4 metre ceiling
- a wall-mounted boom for one Bowens studio flash head, and space for lots more,one of which is usually on a C-stand with boom,
easy access to more lights, assorted modifiers and the stores.
- paper rolls and a large cloth backdrop at one end and a fabric background at the other
- one window
Main Rooms Downstairs:
- The Alcove room: a large high (3m ceiling) domestic or office room with alcoves, and a large bay window with horizontal slat blinds.
It is furnished lightly, and adaptable.
Two to six flash heads can be provided and positioned there.
The Long Room is also high, has a similar large bay window, and is long toward the window.
It has a counter which could pass for a bar, a diner, an office reception or various other scenes or sets.
The floor has a grass rug on part of it, the walls offer panels of wallpaper, neutral grey, and the recent situation of the world as suitable backgrounds for head shots.
Furniture and the same lighting as the Alcove Room are available and moveable.
And the kitchen has a floorboarded section, now extending to the corner and window.
