I needed a photo for an author bio in an upcoming publication, so I went outside and came up with this.
Lesson learned that evening? Cigar smoking is like making good BBQ: it has to be done low and slow. I puffed away at that stick for a good forty minutes, trying different poses and working up some smoke to get the shot just right. The cigar got hot and harsh quick. This is why I will never understand how some people power a cigar down like cigarettes. It just can’t be done and still be enjoyable.
