"Atlanta Nikonians February 6 Meet-Up"
Wed 02-Dec-09 01:54 AM by ericbowles

Atlanta, US
          

We've got a treat planned for the February meetup of the Atlanta area Nikonians. On Saturday, February 6, we will be traveling to Monroe, Georgia, for a visit to workshop of accomplished luthier Barry Dudley (stradibarrius). Barry is a Nikonian, and has graciously agreed to share his workshop for photography of his beautiful handmade violins, fiddles and guitars, along with tools, work in progress, etc. We'll have a chance to experiment with lighting, flash, and creative techniques. This should make for some wonderful photos.

Here is a link to a recent thread with some photo's of Barry's work.

We are planning to meet at Barry's house at 9:00 AM on February 6.

Here are directions provided by Barry:

My address is;

1212 Savannah Lane
Monroe, GA 30655
770-266-0237

2 ways to come depending on where you are coming from.

#1

I-20 east to exit #82, Conyers - Hwy 138.
Turn north away from Conyers and go about 17 miles to the intersection of Hwy #138 and H.D. Atha Rd. At this intersection there will be a traffic light and a Shell Station on your right.
Turn right on H. D. Atha Rd. going east...proceed for about 1/2 mile to Savannah Heights subdivision on your left.
Turn left on Savannah Lane and I am the 5th house on the left.

#2

Go east on Hwy 78, Stone Mountain Freeway, past Stone Mt., through Snellville, through Loganville to Hwy #138. Exit onto 138 and go south about 3-4 miles to H. D. Atha Rd.
Turn left at the traffic light, Shell station and go to Savannah Heights Subdivision.
Turn left onto Savannah Lane and I am the 5th house on the left.

Going this way there are many traffic lights as you go through the towns of Snellville and Loganville.

Let me know if you need more info.

One "request" from Barry is a new image for his website. So as you are thinking about the outing, please keep that in mind.

I'll post a car pool location shortly. It will be around 8:00 AM at the first exit east of outside I-285 and I-20.

Thanks to Barry Dudley for hosting our Atlanta Area Nikonians meet-up yesterday. Even without the photography the visit and learning about the craftsmanship of his wonderful instruments would have been a treat.

Here are a few images from the day.

Thank you for letting us see your shop and your wonderful hospitality. Rob and I had a really great time. As musicians, we both are intrigued with a luthiers craft. Truly great instruments you have there.

Rob is still blown away by the bass response of the guitar you graciously allowed him to play on. He said it was all he could do to play it softly because of the strong resonance!

I received a CD in the mail yesterday from Joe and he had some really great shots. I am so accustomed to looking at my shop that many of the things that you folks found interesting have become run of the mill for me.

Ater looking at some of the shots I have seen so far and observing some of the shots that all of you were taking, I feel like there are lots of things that I take for granted in my shop.
I think I saw Liz taking some shots of my varnish brushes???? I thought that that was a great idea and I am going to have to copy the effort!

Sorry for being a copy cat....
