In case anyone wanted to know what a lightening strike can do to the body- given that they survive.
I’ve reblogged this before but I didn’t know it was from a lightning strike. That’s insane.
I WILL NOT STOP REBLOGGING THIS UNTIL EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS THAT THESE ARE NOT INJURIES FROM A LIGHTNING STRIKE. THIS IS THE WORK OF AN EXTREMELY TALENTED MAKEUP ARTIST ON DEVIANTART. THE ORIGINAL POST IS RIGHT HERE [X]. STOP SPREADING FALSE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS PHOTO AND CREDIT THE ARTIST.
The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.
