    I'm going to be using 1 of 2 rooms in my house for a studio abd wanted to know how important wall color is. One room is a medium green color and the other is a light/medium khakhi color. I don't mind painting one of them white but just wondering how vital it really is. Ill most be using seamless paper backdrop but don't want any stray colors from bouncing light.

    Your obviously lighting your subjects with strobes or something. As long as your not bouncing one off a colored wall you shouldn't notice. Especially if the ambient light is low.

    unless the room is huge... white is a no go... and depending on the size of the room, a dark grey is your best bet.

    What's the ideal size a room needs to be for an adequate studio? I just got home but I'll go and measure shortly.

    i would go w/ a dark neutral grey. White will give too much bounce you'll likely be constantly trying to kill the fill it creates.

    The only way of knowing what an "ideal" size is, knowing what you intend to shoot in it, and what equiptment you'll be using/storing in it.

    I won't be shooting anything bigger then perhaps 2 people full length. Everything else will be head/shoulder, lying, sitting, etc. Not worried about storage room.
