Vintage photo shoot at DBU

I was having an idea of doing a small scale photo shoot for some time. I didn’t really have an idea of what to do or how to do. One day I saw some really nice pictures of Layani and I asked her whether she is ok for a photo shoot. So it started, we decided on a theme and it was Vintage. Having thought of conducting the photo shoot at either Dutch Hospital or Independent Square I went to visit those two places only to find out that we need permission from Ministry of Defense to do such a thing (Seriously are those places a target for any terrorist organization??)

The Dutch Burgher Union (DBU) of Sri Lanka is an old colonial type building located in Colombo and I happened to go there to get a Lamprais. After a chat and some email conversations they agree to let us conduct the photo shoot at the DBU. For some reason I decided to complicate the simple photo shoot by adding a Vintage car, some makeup artists, and some more photographers.

The photo shoot took place on Saturday, 29th September 2012 and it was a massive success. I never thought it would be this great but it really was :)
