Planning a Mini Home Photo Studio – ORC Week 1

Hey everyone! Full disclosure time: the end of the semester is coming up and I’m already freaking out about how busy I am. That said, I have a neglected room in my house, I know what I want to do with it, and it’s April… so finals be damned, we’re sinking our teeth into another One Room Challenge! Buckle up, because this time we’re getting a little crazy and designing a mini home photo studio.

How the Room Looks Now

As you can see, the room is teeny tiny! Optimizing space is going to be of paramount importance. Most people with a home photo studio have more space to dedicate to it, but hey, we’re working with what we’ve got!

Photo studios are usually pretty blank spaces, so this is going to be an interesting design. This room is mainly used for storage at the moment. In contrast to most interior designs, the goal here is going to be finding ways to make the room blank!

I’d like to start experimenting with boudoir photography, so the bed stays. Bonus: this way the room can still function as a guest room. So what are the goals for this space?

Plans for a (Mini!) Home Photo Studio

  • properly organize and store the boxes of memories, etc. sprawled out everywhere
  • remove all extraneous furniture and stored stuff
  • repair the damaged spots in the drywall, patch with paint
  • hang some way to have different backdrops
  • find a headboard for the bed

Guys, with my school schedule this semester, this ORC is going to be a wild ride! Stay tuned for down and dirty progress on my mini home photo studio, and check out other ORC guest participants here!
