This Signature Was Created By Waving A Camera At The Moon

Do you know that it’s possible to ‘write’ using the moon?

Photographer John Kraus showed that it’s not only possible, but he can also create his signature with ‘moon ink’—by waving his camera at the moon in long exposure setting.

But it is not as easy as it sounds, the movement is based on feel, and any minor lapse in the motion will result in an image that’s very different from your signature.

As can be seen in the image above, the satisfactory shot was only produced after 105 attempts over an half hour period.

Check out some of his other attempts below (images appear backwards as they have not been flipped yet):
