    My version of Lou's DOJ/S

    This is my version of Uncle Lou's DOJ/s ,With his blessings of course. I made this on customer request, it is for a S&W 1911 / lite rail. The pics aren't that great, ( can't seem to get the hang of it ).




    Thanks for looking

    Like I said previously, YOU DO GREAT WORK! As soon as my budget improves (just bought a Kimber) I will definitely be ordering some of your leather.

    Rhome,
    Very nicely done!
    Here's a photo tip, at least what works for me:
    Try taking the photos outside on a bright sunny day, but take them in a lightly shaded area with no flash.
    By taking the photos in the shade you get no shadows and no glare from the flash, but since it's bright and sunny out there's enough light for the camera and to highlight your work.

    Hey, Rhome, the holster looks great. As far as the pictures, I am no expert, it appears you are using a flash only or some other form of one source direct lighting. As a result of this your shadows are taking away a lot of your detail. Check with Chris (P95Carry) for some pointers. By the way you also might want to check with him about your future website - that's what he does to finance his guns.

    Rhome - true outside pics in bright light but not direct sun will help - but also consider either outside or in - setting white balance to suit - having a white sheet over your work and position lights to get a nice even lighting and then shadows will soften and highlights be less intense.

    If white sheet in sun or bright outdoors - use a large white card too for fill in lighting - experiment a bit. If you want any web pointers just PM me sometime.
