Cigar Aficionado

By Edithlevy

Don’t get fooled by the title, I’m not really a cigar aficionado but my husband is a bit of one. He loves to smoke an occasional cigar and made it his mission, while we were in Cuba, to purchase some fine Cuban cigars. For my part I was happy to tag along realizing that this was a photo opportunity that wouldn’t come along very often.

The gentleman in these images was more than happy to let me photograph him my only problem was the lack of light. I had to increase my ISO to 3200 to get any decent images and I still had to use a relatively slow shutter speed. While the Canon 7D is pretty good at high ISOs at 3200 there was still too much noise for my liking. My favorite noise reduction software is Topaz DeNoise and once again it came through in spades. You can download a trial version of Topaz DeNoise and you can use the discount code ELPHOTO to get 15% off any Topaz product.
