Friday Shooters: Glass Blowing, Graffiti, and Much More....

  • Studioplex LLC

    659 Auburn Avenue Northeast, Atlanta, GA (map)

    33.757038 -84.366104

    We will meet at the entrance to the StudioPlex

  • Join us at StudioPlex, once the former southeastern Cotton Warehouse and now a funky loft complex, for a unique photo shoot.  We will meet at the main entrance to Studio Plex.  Besides an opportunity to photograph the architecture of the building itself, Matt and Kim Janke of Janke Glass Studio have graciously agreed to allow us to photograph their glassblowers in action.  For those of you willing to explore a little farther, you will find exuberant graffiti images nearby along Krog Street.  Also close by are photographic opportunities along both developed and undeveloped portions of the Atlanta Beltline.  At noon, let's meet for lunch at Bell Street Burrito just across Irwin Street from StudioPlex.

    If necessary, in order not to overcrowd the glass studio, we will stagger ourselves in groups of three or four at a time to photograph the glass blowing process.

    I was in that area today and Krog Bridge has an awesome graffiti. I was so excited about the glass blowing though..

    Weather.com shows rain showers off and on today. So, in the best interest of our camera gear, we will cancel today's photo shoot at Studio Plex and try again some other day. Hope to see you soon at another Decatur Digital Photography photo shoot or event.

    Where should we park tomorrow ? Any suggestions?

    January 10, 2013

    • Karen Schaefer

      There is plenty of parking at Studio Plex. Just be sure not to park in the numbered parking spots. The unnumbered spots are around the edge of the parking lot.

    i was wondering can you use a flash inside the building when taking pictures of the people making glass

    January 10, 2013

    • Ronald Roberts

      That's a very good question. I don't think they would mind at all. My suggestion would be that the glass we will be shooting will have just come out of the oven and will be so hot (and bright) that a flash probably wouldn't be necessary. It will be a little like shooting into the sun.

    Can I bring my own glass art to be photographed?

    January 10, 2013

    • Ronald Roberts

      James, since we are going to be in someone else's shop, let's not. Perhaps at some later date we can arrange to shoot it.

    Do we need a tripod for this shoot?

    January 5, 2013

    • Karen Schaefer

      Dick, if you have a tripod, I'd say bring it. You can probably get some good shots without a tripod, but having one gives you more options.
