Above is an actual color photograph of the December 7th attack on Pearl Harbor. Photos and motion pictures of this era were the inspiration for the "1945" color process seen in this
The feeling that I am trying to achieve is WWII color combat cameras. This is a straight transfer from film to tape with no special effects added digital or otherwise. It's pure chemistry -- fun!
There are no digital plug-ins that can achieve these results.
John Tindall is known for his laboratory and the fruits of this lab are often as beautiful as they are explosive. Photographic research has been done here over the last 20 years that has created some unique and incredible looks.
In process 1919, certain photographic artifacts were created using a combination of chemistry and technique that resulted in the complete illusion of period cinematography. In process 1945 Tindall has combined these techniques with further manipulation of the color process. The results are even more spectacular!
