The “Ball of Light” is an inspiring photographic project by Denis Smith. The glowing spheres are made by the photographer at night, using the technique of light painting.

Official notes about movie, “Ball of Light” (2011; produced by Sam Collins):

This 15 minute documentary tells the story of Denis Smith, professional light painter. Two years ago, Denis was in a high pressure sales job, struggling with drink, debt and depression. His family life was suffering, so he needed to make changes to his life before all was lost. He moved to Australia and soon discovered light painting, a unique form of photography which allows for vibrant and surreal imagery. Through a new found love of creativity, Denis began to change his life and find clarity.
