Original Art Photography Series by @velimir #174 'Yellow Ghost Car'

in art •  2 years ago  (edited)

The name of this art photograph is: 'Yellow Ghost Car'

'Taxi Driver' comes to mind when I look at this one. You remember that old film with Robert De Niro and Jodie Foster? I guess what does it could be the expressive roughness and the yellow car reminiscing of De Niro's cab and his awesome role. If some of you younger people haven't seen that one, download it. It is one of the "oldies but goldies" from the seventies. Not sure, but I think it got Golden Palm at Cannes.

This photograph of a yellow ghost car, as is usually the case with the best ones, came out beyond my expectations. It was a double exposure taken in a single take, what is quite a rare achievement since the car was moving. None of this was composited in Photoshop but was snapped on the street as is. The rough surfaces are juxtaposed to the slightly blurred yellow car, appearing as if beaming out of some invisible dimension. The depth of field is interesting to observe, as it was created as an outcome of both expositions. We can observe a mix, creating a single symphony of focused and unfocused parts in the composition. The focus is still exactly where it should be and plays a major role.

The yellow and orange are quite saturated compared to the rest of an even-toned surrounding. Bluish and green even the balance a bit, but not enough to overtake the warm feeling. The real colour rivalry happens between the dark orange and yellow. Their mutual dependence dominates the image. The rest is quite desaturated, letting the yellow car become the centre of attention. The photography is composed of many smaller elements which all work together in creating some sort of a rough but contained feeling.

  • "You talkin' to me?" :D (watch the movie)

I thought of pasting that legendary scene from youtube but better if you watch the entire thing.

Enjoy! :)

Good photo

Sorry for not taking the time to google it but I want to ask you a question. What is double exposure and what camera can do that? Thank you.

Yeah, I also want to know what camera he uses

Hello Hiro,
In-camera double exposure is a process in which you take one picture on top of other.

It is possible to do it with digital camera, as well!

Not all digital cameras have this capability. Current models that do include the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, 1D X, and 70D; most Nikon DSLRs; Fujifilm’s X-Pro1 and X100s; and the Olympus OM-D E-M5, among others. With some, combining exposures works only with RAW captures.

Hope it helps.

Double exposure means, that you shoot two times on one piece of film.
So only analog cameras can do this.

@velimir ......this post is useful and i am grateful for that....
I guess you are a genius when it comes to art/photography and that is if i am permitted to use the word reason? because i believe appreciation is better than been told

Looking at the art work "yellow gost car", my knowledge got widen after going through the whole illustration that you made...

In your post, you said;

The photography is composed of many smaller elements which all work together in creating some sort of a rough but contained feeling.

Good to hear that @velimir ....You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.

@velimir I Love your art, It really transports you and let your mind run. Absolutely Robert De Niro is one of the best love his films. Thanks for sharing!

The photograph is awesome! I feel like I could find myself lost for hours in a gallery surrounded by photos in a series accompanying this one. Nice work @velimir!

Yes, it is very similar to the "Taxi driver", the dynamics, aggression, even the wall of the house there was similar, it seems ... Wow!

the mysterious photo of a phantom taxi ... looks intriguing and evokes interest .. very yellow and orange in the background. This gives the photos some sense of cold, but it is quite harmoniously combined with the name of the ghostly taxi. The ghost - the taxi attracts attention is the center of this picture :)
Thanks for the advice on watching the movie - I was looking for something to see.
Good night to you

an excellent photo, it seems to me it has a hypnotic effect - it creates a feeling that looking at this "ghost" photo that it consists of two different places. Therefore, it seems that the taxi is ghostly - because it is in a different place, and we see only its phantom, the projection superimposed on this gray place :) I am visited by interesting thoughts looking at this photo. Thanks @velimir for puzzling me for the night.

This one is the best in among all. Yellow car is steeling the show here in this art. How beautifully you did that, Even 100% marks for the thinking this into the mind.

Amazing velimir!

Very good photo, super original and thank you for recommending the movie.

This one is really super special! It feels like a photo on an oil painting! The explosion of all the colors reflects the immaterialised nature of all things.

I really love the combination of movement & texture! Great job! :)

The thing "Yellow Ghost Car" seems a good title. Pretty creepy :)

This is art. I love originality. Keep it up brother. I am into Photography as well. Not many wound believe a medical doctor could be a photographer. But they are wrong. I am one. :D

Nice work!

looks so good.

I think this is not camera functions, It's editing am i right?

Hey @velimir. I love that photo. It looks so artistic and strange in a good way. Thanks for sharing :-D

Great post, in some point I thought of taxi the queen latifah version, Will definitely try to check out the original version for sure, I love double exposure pic, there are some eerie and fun about it. I also love the pop of yellow from the ghost taxi, great choice for storytelling ^^@velimir

this is pretty cool. it really looks like a painting more than a photo! that's neat how you can accomplish that just with the exposure settings.

nice work, keep it up :)

Nice one you got there Mr Velimir

This is the best I've seen from you so far

I love how it looks like the car is just driving out of the bricks, amazing vision!

awesome post well explained .

I love that quote: "You talkin' to me".

One of the most memorable movie quotes ever.

I watched that movie like 5 times.
