World War Two In Color

Color Photographs From WW2 - Exercises in Creating World War Two Color Photographs

These pages are part of a work in  progress project to take black and white photos from world war two and  colorize them with BlackMagic. To begin with I will be putting some  experimental images on line but as the project to add color to these old war photos grows I will create a more coherent set of pages. If anyone  is interested in getting involved in this projects please let me know




Our first image is rather simple, a matter of minutes using  Blackmagic, but it is a start. I begin with a photo of the battleship  Bismarck which was one of the last to be taken. It was shot from the  Prinz Eugen in May 1941.The Bismarck itself was not really a colorful  ship, standing out like a sore thumb was considered poor naval  tactics.The camera used on the Prinz Eugen was probably quite basic compared to todays standards and was probably shooting into the light but i have tried to add a bit of Battleship Gray€¯ to it.. The main exercise here was to get some realistic color for the sea and sky. As  far as i know this is a unique color photograph of the Battleship Bismarck. Below I show the original and the colorized version. please  click on the images to see larger versions.Bizmarck In Black and WhiteBizmarrck In Color
