This week I got a chance to meet a cigar maker in a very photogenic cigar shop in north of Los Angeles. He's been making cigars for almost 25 years! When I met him in his comfort zone, making cigars and listening to music I felt that this is the best time for me to document this experience.

For this shoot I used my Fuji X-Pro1 with Fujinon 35mm 1.4, 18mm 2.0 and recently arrived 60mm 2.4 :)

The entire shoot happened in a dark room with only one desk lamp and very little natural light coming through the window. Most of the images were shot in high ISO.

All I can say is that I’m really amazed and impressed by the performance of this little camera with it's excellent lenses. I recently noticed that my Canon 5D MKII is relaxing in it's bag and soon might get retired!

I’m extremely happy with this camera and all three lenses.

Thanks for reading my story,

Great images! Are they right from the camera or did you do some post processing?
+Faran Najafi I shoot JPEG most of the time. I like image manipulation and post processing but not on every image. My DSLR a S5 Pro has also a very good JPEG engine.

The colours on your images are very pleasant and appropriate
