3. Follow Friday: I don't know about you but I never get tired of looking at pictures of rocket launches. The only problem is that the images that the rocket companies and photojournalists post online can seem a bit repetitive and flat because they are taken from similar angles.
In comes John Kraus, who describes himself as a "full-time spaceflight photographer capturing Earth’s out-of-this-world moments." (And, full disclosure, he is also a teenager.)
Kraus placed seven cameras to record the launch of a Delta IV Medium rocket at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on Wednesday.
"My cameras are sound-triggered and must take images without human intervention, as humans can be severely injured or even killed at the same distances from which my cameras operate," he writes in his website.
But what makes Kraus stand out is that he often sets up cameras further away, allowing viewers to enjoy some of the beautiful scenery the Space Coast has to offer.
Thanks to this strategic camera set-up, Kraus was able to capture Wednesday's wondrous launch from different angles. He later put together an album that feels truly immersive, thanks in part to this video that beautifully captured the extreme force of the liftoff.
Kraus is able to work as a full-time rocket launch photographer thanks to the contributions of members of the public. In return, he gives his patrons behind-the-scenes content and digital downloads of his photos.
