    Human Leather

    Someone sent me this link to the manufacturer and I couldn't hardly believe what I was reading.

    http://www.humanleather.co.uk/aboutus.html

    I wonder what they'd charge for a human leather camera bag

    Honestly, how could anyone want a belt, wallet or shoes made out of human skin?

    It's the grossest thought for me possible.

    People taking the time out to give me CC is always very much appreciated

    Avoid shooting with a 12 gauge shotgun. Use a Canon instead.

    Canon 5D, Canon 7D, 50mm 1.4, 18-55mm, Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 VC, Sigma 70-200mm f2.8, 580EX Speedlight. Facebook

    Deer skin is actually nicer if you're looking for a nice, soft leather.
    About the only real advantage human leather has over leather from other animals is that there is less hair to remove.

    I won't go into the old joke about wallets made of foreskins either...........................

    Having been in the leather business for most of my life, I've seen and touched human leather, and it isn't really anything to write home about.
    Just very expensive items for people who have more money than "cents".
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.

    That's messed up on many levels!

    Reminds me of Buffalo Bill: "It rubs the lotion on it's skin, or else it gets the hose again"

    Decided to "shave" my signature ;]
    Now mostly shoots with: Canon 5D MK3 & Canon 24-70 f/2.8/50mm f/1.8 (also have a 550D with a variety of lenses/goodies and a Sony Nex-5N)
    PP with: Lightroom only, Photoshop is merely a 9-5 work tool for me.
