Yes, we shot this in a cemetery. I have very mixed feelings about graveyards for photoshoots because they are very personal places and not the kind of place you want to disrespect by running around giggling in costumes and all. They are not props. However, they do have a creepy/solemn atmosphere, and the Toronto Necropolis is very secluded, with towering trees and plenty of gloom.
So this one is a very old cemetery. While it is active, there are many sections of it that are "abandoned" more or less -- headstones that are no longer being maintained and have been worn by the weather to the point where there are no names left. The necropolis was established in 1850, so needless to say many of the people buried there have been there for a loooooong time.
We decided to stick strictly to those headstones. Before we left we discussed ground rules for respectful behavior -- no walking over graves, no touching graves, no dishonest displays of mourning, no including grave names in shots, stick to unkempt/abandoned graves from before 1900. As it was a Saturday evening and very cold, there was no one to disrupt or disturb.
I would still be very hesitant to shoot in a cemetery younger than this, really.
