I’m waging war against poor cellphone photos! Too often we are bombarded by blurry or out of focus photos all over the internet by cigar lovers that just haven’t been taught a couple important points about how to use the camera function of their phone. So here’s a real fast easy tutorial that will dramatically help your photo quality and hopefully quell the onslaught of crappy pictures we have to see! 🙂

    Too simple. Awesome advise. Many thanks. Can you make this a post on CO FANS Facebook page.

    Not sure that function exists on my Blackberry Bold…piece of crap camera!

  • MorganGeo

    Great advice for everyone and it gave me a chuckle.

  • nhahguod

    Yeah, Bryan! Thanks for sharing your wisdom in your own unique style. This should add to the quality of cigar photos posted everywhere.

  • ScottW

    Fantastic Brian, I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve probably watched more of your videos over the past year than any other site. Keep up the great work!

    • MorganGeo

      Don’t be ashamed, be glad. The CO reviews blow all the other reviewers out of the water. (In my opinion) 🙂

    Great post. Should be cross-posted with PTO.

    Excellent video, Bryan! It really surprises me how many people don’t know how to take a decent picture with a cell phone.

    Awesome video…and funny!

    My phone photos would still come out crappy because I do not have a smart phone.

    Another informative video, Bryan.

    That’s a crazy stack of cigar boxes. Out of curiosity, I notice they’re shrink wrapped, and I assume you’re not standing in a walk-in humidor. How long can you store boxes like that?

    • Most of the year here it’s perfect humidor conditions in the house. I keep the A/C at 72 and it’s usually between 60 and 70% RH in the back room. Those are for a photoshoot and they don’t stay long anyway.

    Also, I don’t know what you have against people posting pictures of their crotches on the internet.

    I love this video. “You’re gonna delete that crap”. So funny! I take pictures of the cigars I really like, and I have found that sometimes just cleaning the lint off the lens makes all the difference. You’re the best, Glynn.

    I have been guilty of this. Thanks for the tips Bryan.
