The Yellow Taxi Project

Published May 26th, 2012

The second day in New York I noticed street vendors selling photos of New York. Among the photos were several of bright yellow cabs against a black and white background. I kind of liked them. New York street in BW with yellow taxis in bright yellow, why not?



That's how I got the idea.



I decided to do a similar project, but this time with my iPhone 4 as the tool. Every step is done with the iPhone 4.
I have used the following apps:
ColorSplash for selective coloring
Filterstorm and PSExpress for fine tuning, contrast, brightness etc.



A few of them are shot with Pro HDR - an app that does HDR out of two exposures.

This is cropped to get rid of a light reflecting area beneath the cab. That's the reason it has other dimensions. 5th Ave.
