  • UM+ Fall/Winter Lookbook: Behind the Scenes

    On a very chilly December morning, a bunch of hot babes gathered in Toronto's beautiful Necropolis for the Ursa Major+ FW Lookbook shoot.   I had been wanting to shoot there forever - opened in 1850, there are over 50,000 graves spanning across it's huge perimeters.  The day was more than brisk but we made the best of it and the ladies were absolute troopers in cropped tops and skirts.  We had lots of fun while working efficiently and were able to finish literally at the moment the first snowfall of the season started, which was more like brutal hail. 

    I love taking pictures and have quite the assortment of analog and old polaroid cameras but this was my first time doing a big shoot with my little Canon Rebel XS.  I am by no means trained in photography, mostly picking up bits and pieces as I work on making my store better and better.  The light was really tricky that day, giving me another opportunity to learn and I look forward to figuring more out and developing my skills.  That being said, I love working with photographers and if you are interested in collaborating on a project please feel free to send me an email (amarina@ursamajor.ca)!

    Here are some behind the scenes shots from the shoot and be sure to check out the lookbook and feel free to let me know what you think in the comments.  Hope you like it!
