Makers

A new shop opened in Bristol recently. Makers is very ‘of the moment’, with lots of beautifully designed, hand-crafted items from jewellery to art prints, furniture and accessories.

What a great place to continue practicing with my trusty D3100, I thought. Luckily the owners kindly agreed.

I’m still getting to grips with all the different settings, but I’m trying to use ‘auto’ as little as possible so as to get used to the brainwork involved in balancing shutter speed, aperture and all the rest of it.

I’m also enjoying how much you can improve a photo once you get it onto the computer! I just use the free iPhoto software that came with my Mac, and it’s amazing what you can do.

Anyway, what do you think of this lovely little store? If you’re in the area, you should definitely check it out.

    Bristol is certainly full of creative people and it’s definitely worth shopping in and supporting these local independent shops,
