Before all these lockdowns I never really had the need to make my working space similar to what you would see at a corporate office as an example. All I really needed was some space to use things like the computer and it was as simple as that. But nowadays people are trying to conduct more meetings digitally where in some cases you have to do presentations. As a result it would often call for your environment to be very quiet or that you have good lighting for the camera. You are pretty much setting up a mini studio.
At first I just got away with it by simply setting up things like a camera in a living room to then remove everything once it is done. But as it becomes more frequent it feels like it is better to invest in something more permanent. I can imagine one day where you have sudden work that needs to be done through live conferencing and the last thing you need is struggling to get everything up quickly.
So maybe even a person like me would need one. People often say even before this it’s great to create a studio as people find themselves being more productive that way. If I do need to invest in a ton of new equipment to make one then I should be able to use it for more than just one purpose I feel.
