    Alright guys, so I've been having a great time shooting outdoors and on make shift indoor set ups but... I want to order off camera flashes and make a studio setup too.

    I currently rent my house and don't have free garage space or rooms to dedicate to a studio. I've thought about renting a space but I'm not sure I would be there enough to make it worth the cost just yet. Any ideas?? Would like a place that people can come to and not feel like they are getting their pictures taken in "my living room" lol

    I'm not sure where you are, but I've been looking into renting warehouse spaces in SF for a studio (not photography) and they are surprisingly cheap, roughly $1 per square foot and if you can find 1-3 people who have similar interests and are willing to share with you, a small warehouse space should be pretty affordable although most spaces for rent are fairly large. You'd probably have to do some setting up but it's better than paying a premium for a livable studio space

    Keep in mind that I'm in San Francisco, where real estate is more expensive than most places in the US.

    I'm in hick town Illinois, i may have to do some real digging to find a small place for rent. Most all places are apartments, open business offices, places that would want WAY more than I could find reasonable to pay :) I'm going to keep on the look out though!
