First product photo with my Nikon D40

Rocky Patel Decade Photo

As you probably know by now, I have a new Nikon D40 and have been waiting for warmer weather in order to get out and snap some photos. Not wanting to venture out in the frigid temperatures, I’ve been snapping photos here and there inside my house (which has been nothing spectacular).

While getting ready for my weekly cigar reviewOpens in a new tab. on the Stogie ReviewOpens in a new tab., I thought it would be an excellent time to take advantage of my new camera. I’ve been trying to incorporate an artistic shot of the cigar being reviewed into my actual review. The photo above is the end result, and I must say, I’m very happy with it.

With this new found excitement, I’m planning on snapping a bunch more cigar photos just for fun. I’ve got a few ashtrays and other props to use with the cigar, so I hope to find something unique and interesting to set as my newest desktop wallpaper.

How do you think the photo turned out?
