I'd be more concerned about the cigar, that's been added afterwards surely?? His lips don't wrap around it for a start....

Yep, I thought that at first. But if you look very closely, I think you'll find his teeth are clamped around a piece of plastic that is somehow connected to the cigar. Let's call it a 'cigar holder'.

Nope, I didn't add the cigar afterwards. You're right that there's something connected to the cigar. I think it's a toothpick or a match.
He was not smoking for sure.

The whole set-up is clearly a theatrical cameo/re-enactment. But I like the way the image came out, including the slightly crazed look on the fake MP's face.

I think it would be worth cleaning out the reflection in his sunglasses to help maintain the illusion a little longer for sad people like me who always go investigating that sort of detail.

Stack focus? @F2 it seems like only 1 object would be in focus.

Why ISO 160?

Great shots as usual.

Thank you, I find it better most times to maintain a higher SS and bump ISO when shooting children that like to move on me a lot.. that way I can assure a sharp image.. in all honestly I probably could have gotten away with 1/400 SS
