Fancy dress costumes are wicked enough in themselves but what if you combine them with your Lomo skills? Costume+ Lomo = sick photos. This selection of snaps are from a zombie-themed party, note the blood, fangs and ghostly characters.

Plus, as the photos have to be developed first there’s an added excitement on how everything would turn out.
For these pictures, I shot using film with ISO 800 as I knew it would be dark outside and I’d also be going around inside. Even with the high speed, the snaps came out in beautifully moody tones with the blood red saturated to a ghastly extent!

In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.
