+1.

Having a quick look through their blog, most of the photos are superb. A little sharpening here and there but I am pretty sure that there is a minimal amount of post going on (especially with regards to contrast).

Very well lit and composed photographs. LF photos are IMO some of the best out there.

It's very difficult to get a photograph which looks that good straight out of the camera. A lot of time would have been spent getting the lighting and composition absolutely spot-on.

Clicking on the photos, of course, opens a larger version, where more detail can be seen.

It's a little hard to believe that they have been photo-shopped all that much, if at all. You can see dust motes all over the Chelseas...that's very hard to see through the lens of a camera but they always show up in the finished photo. .

And if I had access to a professional photographer with Photoshop at his disposal, I would have, at the very least, asked him to clean up the heels on some of the shoes.

After going through pages and pages of this thread, thinking it may be time to pull the trigger on some nice chukkas in alligator or croc.

My understanding is that alligator > croc except for some particular types (e.g., saltwater croc).

Definitely not well versed enough yet to know how to choose. Also thinking Carmina, don't really want to spend over 4k.

Correct - the scales on alligator are larger and the leather is heavier and sometimes needs shaving down to make shoes/boots

I'm saving for a pair of alligator boots - I've got 2 bags that I've had since 2000, and they're indestructible.smile.gif

Nile and salt water crocodile are the premier leathers. Alligator is close behind, but not in the same class.

Any idea where to source Nile and Salt water croc skins?

You should consider Bonafe. The leather they use is pretty great. At least I'm very happy with mine.

 

Gator derby/oxford goodyear is probably around 1500-2500$ depending on the model, boots being around 2500$.(Caiman is a lot cheaper, but doesn't look that good)
