And…. we are back after a long hiatus away. Here’s to more photos soon!
I had such a great time photographing a great client: Tiant Cigar Group. Daniel and I have been discussing this type of shoot for his family’s brand of cigars for a few months, but we couldn’t find the time to fit into his father’s schedule. We work around many clients’ schedules if there are certain circumstances: Daniel’s father is Luis Tiant, a former Red Sox championship pitcher and a very busy man. We made do and it worked out great! We chose Tamiami Cigar Bar for a different take on the typical cigar photos I have been known to do and Tamiami Cigar Bar blew me away! It’s absolutely a gem for photography. Danny, the bar owner was super accommodating. If you ever want a choice of 4 different VIP rooms – Tamiami Cigar Bar is your place!
We had to light in very small quarters, so we packed pretty small. Only using the Alien Bees for the chess game set, the rest were small lumopro LP 160 flashes, usually just using one. I really enjoy working with the Tiant Cigar Group and they make a pretty mean stick. If you are a cigar lover like myself and Kerry, you most definitely have to try El Tiante Cigars.
Enjoy more photos after the jump!
