About

Welcome! You have encountered our awesome blog dedicated to studios! When I say studios, I of course don’t mean studio apartments, or hair studios (why are they called that?). This website is dedicated to information relating to recording studios, photography studios, videography studios, and all of the awesome ways to capture media in the 21st century.

I, myself, have been engulfed in photography as well as audio recording technology, both analog and digital (that goes for photography as well). I, personally, find the technology absolutely amazing. What’s most amazing about it to me is just how expansive these hobbies can become, and how quickly you can see the home studio turn into a profit-generating machine of content creation!

The reason I started this blog is because I believe in the raw power of studio enthusiasts to come together to really dive into the content, the technology, the applications, and all of the other aspects of this wide genre of setups.

Every studio enthusiast has great ideas, and a great interest in learning more to improve their craft or simply enjoy taking in all that knowledge.

Sidenote: I like the term: “studio enthusiast.” It’s not necessarily a title most people would call themselves by, but it’s one I believe a lot of people share. I sincerely believe that there is an extraordinary amount of enthusiasm to be had with the studio genre.

Here’s a quick idea of the content I really want to develop in this blog.

Technology

The technology of the studio game is a never-ending battle to have the most efficient setup, the best shadows, the lowest-noise microphone gains, and more.

The coolest thing about electronic technology (as opposed to technology like plastic) is that it’s constantly evolving and improving at a light-speed rate. That’s why I believe it’s so important to have a resource such as this one to collect that information and share it with you.

Best Practices

When determining the best studio director, it doesn’t come down to who has the most expensive mics or cameras. And that’s an understatement. The most important thing is truly what you do with the equipment.

It’s like momma always said, it’s not the size that matters, it’s what you do with it. Obviously, this is referring to the size of your digital camera’s sensor.

It’s the same with all sub genres of these studios. With audio recording, there’s a lot that has to do with how you setup a microphone (e.g. whether you point an instrumental mic at the 12th fret of a guitar or the 9th fret).

Of course, when we’re talking about studios who are working for money, there are also many best practices when it comes to dealing with clients, which can come down to negotiating prices, accommodation, and how to direct a client without being too forceful. Clients don’t always know what’s best for them, so there’s certainly a trade off.

Examples

Sometimes, you just see an awesome studio setup and want to share it with the world. Sometimes, a mix is so well mastered that you have to share it. Sometimes, an Instagram photo has just the perfect studio lighting and you have to share it. You see what I mean.

 

Essentially, this is the purpose of the blog, and I’m looking forward to where it takes me us.
