    Focus rant

    Seriously, I know most pics of cigars are taken at close range, almost macro but why post a blurry pic? I mean do people take pics then see they are blurry and go "What the hell, I'll post this crappy pic anyway?" Photography is another hobby of mine so maybe I am more sensitive than others but is it just me or are other people bothered as well?

    Well I was going to save and post a bunch of out of focus pics from the forum but I decided I didnt want to call anyone out on it. I appreciate you stepping up and admitting you have a problem. Thats the first step to recovery.

    During the last Rally for the troops I was doing everything I could even had a mini tripod and at least half were blurry. trust me I got plenty of crap for them

    I think then it was like ten or more pictures a day plus several hours working the troops seriously I couldn't care less if someone was bothered by a few blurry pictures. LOL Now things are slower maybe I'll see if the thing came with directions in English LOL

    some people have shitty cameras, some people are just shitty at taking pictures but I rather a review have blurry pictures than no pictures

    See that is where I think I disagree. I have read many reviews that are good with no pics. Then you read one and scroll down and go "great, there are pics" and you get a nice shot of someones deck (SEE ABOVE)

    I was kinda joking around to but seriously I would like to get better at my picture taking but the joke about directions was a personal joke as I have tried to read it and for the life of me I can't understand it crazy huh I could build you a house and can't figure the directions to my Canon SD950IS

    The light spot that always appears is what drives me nut's, lights on lights off it just doesn't work. I was much better with a 35MM

    I'm guilty of this and couldn't care less. I snap a pic with my crappy phone camera and use my photobucket app. So much faster than making a light box, buying a $1000 camera with tripod and transferring photos from camera to computer to photobucket to puff. I can do all of it on my phone on the fly to show I received a trade or proof that I actually bought a box in a box split.

    If this was a photography site I'd understand your gripe but this is a cigar site and some people just don't care. (This guy)

    If this was a photography forum, I would agree with you. However, not everyone knows how to use a camera properly on here, much less care. I have a Nikon D7000 and I use it all the time but sometimes it's just easier to show the cigar I'm smoking with my iPhone camera.

    If you feel that passionate about it, why not start a thread showing people how you take pictures or maybe tips and tricks to taking close up shot without using a macro lens. You'd get better feedback that way.

    Bottom line, we can't smoke a camera so 90% of the folks here could care less.
    I may be foolish but at least I do it with enthusiasim!

    I'm not upset. I know its hard to convey emotions on the net but I tried to use emotocons to get my feelings across. I started this thread in jest. I dont actually care I just think its funny when people post pics where you cant see what they are taking a pic of. Its not just here. I also think its funny on a car forum where someone wants help with a part and then posts a pic where you cant see the part in question but the driveway is crystal clear.

    Just looking for a little conversation and trying to see if I am alone.
