BTS Sunday: Hustling at Mid-Night
A quick behind-the-scenes look at The Mid-Night Hustle image from Friday.
- Neewer 160 LED dimmable panel light
- Red tissue paper leftover from a birthday gift
- An Impact 5 x 7 collapsible black background
- Clamps that I probably got from Tractor Supply Company but that you can also get on Amazon.
- Location: My garage.
Truth be told, I probably should have popped another background or overhead light to provide a bit more separation between the black hat and the black background.
I did like the soft red glow the tissue paper gave me to simulate a neon light look. A cheap and easy way to alter the light.
Shot with my Fuji X100T, f/2, 1/15th, ISO 400.
And, yes, I purposefully hyphenated mid-night. The Man In The Fedora was having his conversation around 1:30-2 a.m., not at midnight.
There you have it. Simple and easy Jersey Noir.

Technically, more separation may desirable. Artistically, someone working a hustle in the wee hours may want to be blending into the background should things turn ugly.
I like your thinking, David. 🙂
