Giuseppe Milo is an experienced Italian Street Photographer currently based in Dublin, Ireland. He has been studying photography and composition for a long time and has a good knowledge of the art. Even though he loves Street Photography he also enjoys shooting landscapes, architecture and events.
Raining – Chicago, United States
This is a beautiful Street Photograph shot in Chicago USA. Giuseppe has managed to achieve a wonderful result by taking advantage of the available backlight. The placement of the main figure in front of the light enhances its silhouette giving the photograph a cinematic film noir kind of feeling that is of course further emphasised by the fact that the photo is in black and white and also shot in a 16:9 format. The umbrella is perfectly placed between the two most prominent columns that are a basis of a bridge or a big building – we can’t really tell. Its edges are a breath away from either vertical. The front most prominent column is also silhouetted like the main figure and is placed in the right hand vertical of the photo. The left side of the man touches upon the other vertical on the left, balancing the photo perfectly in the eyes of the viewer. Giuseppe timed his shot to the millisecond, managing to get the best possible composition with the least interference. If he had shot this a split second later, the umbrella would have been one with the right hand column and a big van would have dominated the background.
Thank you Giuseppe Milo!
