Por­trait stu­dio

India Today - - COVER STORY -

It’s the age of candid shots, but there is a cer­tain charm to per­fectly planned stu­dio pic­tures, es­pe­cially if they look like a paint­ing. If you’ve ad­mired the por­traits of the erst­while royalty on the walls of palaces, head to the Por­trait Stu­dio to get your own pic­ture per­fect pho­to­graph. What’s spe­cial about this 15-year-old stu­dio on East Street is that they turn fam­ily por­traits into an heir­loom. Spe­cial­ists in fam­ily por­trai­ture, own­ers Au­nali Dhari­wal and son Taaha have de­vised a pro­ce­dure which gives a pho­to­graph the look and feel of a can­vas paint­ing. Taaha will ad­vice you to turn up in your best at­tire, be­cause, af­ter all, the por­trait will bag a place of pride in your home. Once he shoots your pic­ture with his high-end Has­sel­blad cam­era, it’s printed on can­vas and treated with lac­quer to give it the ef­fect of a paint­ing. And all it takes is five days af­ter you’ve selected the pic­ture. So, make sure, you fix an ap­point­ment with Taaha and take home a framed pho­to­graph-paint­ing. At East Street, Camp Tel 26133152
