Dhanya

Vivid Shoot

Chris Alwin James

Had the fun opportunity to photograph Dhanya for a photoshoot during the Vivid festival in Sydney last week.

After having pushed off the photoshoot for such a long time due to bad weather, we finally decided to just give it a go, come what may. And as expected, down came the rain. :P But with such fun company, we found ourselves just mucking around and having fun the whole way. :)

It was a fun night, and this group even surprised me with a little birthday cake! Such sweet people. :D We walked around, dodging the heavy rain whenever possible, and getting a few shots in between.

Honestly a shot that I couldn't stop getting excited over once I got it! I knew it'd come at the cost of a few of us getting drenched, but I think we'd say it was worth it. :D

Tired of dodging the rain, we just embraced it. :)

I wasn't quite sure about how this night would turn out.. but have to say it was quite fun, despite the weather! :D As a photographer, it was fun experimenting with the conditions.

I have to say a big thank you to the other guys, especially Lucky and Godlin who were so chill about soaked in the rain with me to help with lighting. :) All in all, I'd say it was a good night out with friends. :D
