    cheff to be honest , you're pictures are a bit blurry which don't do your straps justice.

    i am no professional photographer but look at all the good strap makers they spend a lot of time on pictures. sometimes the picture can sell the strap.

    i am still trying to convince my wife to let me rest them on her chest for my pics , i'm sure they would do better lol.

    i know they pics are blurry. I don't have a decent camera that will show the straps justice. A good camera is the first thing I know i need to invest in, but currently I don't have the cash for it.

    ya and a good digital isn't cheap either . a better camera is next on my todo list.

    Good effort on the strap.....

    Have you used the macro setting on your camera..? It is the little flower symbol on the camera & is used for close up's which is ideal for watch/strap pics.

    If you have been using it then ignore what I just wrote.....

    good point on the pics monti and james. chef i'm sure your straps looks better in person compared to the pics that you post. for 3 months now i've been using my 5yr old digital camera since my wife accidentally forgot our 2 digital cameras abroad. i have to take a lot of pics with diff lighting scenes just to take a decent shot. and i'm not an experienced photographer. now monti, about the chest thing. just gave me an idea! also, this might help but i never did try this. too lazy for this kind of work.

    i used that site to make mine paul , man tissue paper tears easily , it works but i think i need a brighter light.


    the main reason for clear pictures is showing the straps as best as you can , yes some imperfections might show but but if the customer is interested in it he knows what he is getting there won't be any surprises when he gets it.

    So I took yall's advice and wow what a bid difference in the pics right away. I never new the macro feature was for close up shots. so here are the new pics. They are still a little bit rough but much better then before. Thanks for the help.
