Moon writing

I experimented with a bit of “moon writing” last night. Basically using a long exposure (4 seconds) and moving my camera to create shapes with the light of the moon. I am sure there are plenty of people out there who have fancy cameras and are experts at this sort of thing.

But with a little point-and-shoot, I was able to create one letter at a time, through trial and error. Then I put the letters together with photoshop.

Watching a blacklighting sheet for moths is sort of like watching a pot of water boil. Sometimes it is best to wander off and stop fussing over it. So while I was waiting for moths last night, I played with my camera.

Made this for my boyfriend!

  1. Beautiful! We just got our first black light and now I know what I’ll be doing when the moths are few and far between.
