Ball of Light The healing light ball When Denis Smith was facing the darkest trough in his life, he found it motivative to do photography to get away his depression. Denis played around with long exposure and use his imagination to do light painting himself. His images are interesting because he mixes strong technical long exposure landscapes with his unique “ball of light” light painting skills. Is it helpful to rule away depression by drawing light balls? I don’t know but it is obvious he is now famous with his giant light ball photos.
