The photo was taken with long ex­po­sure. For the first 15 seconds, the author hold still with lights on, to achieve the light in back­ground. Later, he switched off the light and wrote his name with light in his hand. He used his nose as a ref­er­ence point so he could close the "O" letter - which explains the flare at this po­si­tion.
