Pros and Cons of Study Spaces in Boston

For photographers and filmmakers, working with a study space in Boston to bring a project to life is a sound idea. Before deciding whether or not the city is right for your project, it is important to be aware of both its benefits and drawbacks.


  • The diversity of the city offers multiple distinct and interesting study settings, from modern college campuses to classic historical libraries and buildings, there is sure to be something to suit any kind of shooting/filming needs.

  • Boston’s large population and bustling atmosphere provide an easy way to get access to actors and extras for any scene.

  • There are multiple ways to get around the city, making it easier for crew members or equipment rentals to reach the chosen locations in time.


  • Boston is not the most car-friendly city, and it is important to assess accessibility and parking availability before booking a study space.
  • Some study locations might have too much noise interference coming from nearby sources (i.e., construction sites) which could interfere with audio capture during the shoot or recording session.

  • It may prove difficult to find more unique types of study settings within Boston’s city limits, such as period-specific library interiors or private home offices; these might require traveling further out from the city center in order to acquire them.

Tips on How to Organize Study Spaces in Boston

It can take time to ensure the space is organized, comfortable, and well-lit for a video or photoshoot. Follow these handy tips to make sure you have all bases covered when preparing your study space!

  • Clear the area: Remove any objects that could be distracting or that do not contribute to the desired look for the video or photoshoot. This includes personal belongings like books, notebooks, or other items that may spoil the look of your desired set.
  • Get appropriate lighting: Natural light from windows helps reduce shadows and makes sure all parts of your scene are visible. If natural light isn’t available, use artificial lights such as desk lamps or floor lamps to fill in gaps of darkness in your scene. Choose lighting fixtures that match the desired aesthetics for your project.

  • Choose accessories wisely: Use simple props like vintage books or paperweights to add character without cluttering up the area too much. Also, incorporate texture through rugs, blankets, or pillows, to soften hard surfaces in the background, and bring more depth into your shot composition.

  • Consider staging: Staging refers to arranging furniture within the room so it looks balanced within the camera frame when filming begins. For example, you could move furniture around so there's enough negative (empty) space between objects in order for them to be balanced within a shot's composition, etc., as well as arrange seating options near walls or corners so there's enough room for people walking through during a scene, etc.

  • Set aside a clean-up area: Finally, it’s always important to have an area where any props that were used during the shoot should be stored so that they don't get lost or misplaced before you need them again later. To avoid confusion, set up an empty table nearby with labeled boxes/bins where everything used during filming should be placed.
