My husband LOVES his cigars. He smokes one just about every day, so I use the opportunity to take photos! I’ve just started doing this, really, ever since embarking on Project 365 on Flickr and I needed my photo-of-the-day. He doesn’t really like a camera pointing at him though, so I try not to be too pushy when I take photos. I was really happy that he was willing to sit down and smoke in the garage while I snapped some photos with my light set-up … I think they turned out okay (I need to get some barn-doors to really get the perfect look I was looking for).
