A Spooky FishEYE


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.

I find that many of my friends find my camera a bit mysterious, and I always get someone saying ‘shame it’s not digital’. I say, ‘No. Good job it’s analogue!’ Rotating myself around the party capturing the best dressed and telling them to get as close as they can to the lens in their scariest poses was a fun activity for both me and the witches and zombies. 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!

    Nothing against the article and the pictures, great, but I find very hard to understand how this is a location...

    Was meant to be analogue lifestyle, but sumbitted on the wrong form.

    Yes I did use the built in flash on the fisheye1... but it has since ceased to work! One day it charged the next day it didn't. Gutted.
