Classic. I am at the airport and was browsing the shelves. I turned around and saw this!

There is something magical about being on the cover of a major Australian publication that is marketed towards farmers, cattle rustlers and associated earthy folk. They are all part of the amazing Australian Outback, a place I have grown to love.
Is this some sort of breakthrough for Light Painting Photography? I know the Ball of Light is certainly feeling pretty stoked.

Well a huge day today for Denis Smith Photography and the Ball of Light. The Australia Facebook page did a feature on the Ball of Light this morning.
They only have 3,500,000 followers, and it felt like they were all loving us today. I felt, and still feel very humbled that so many have had a look around the project today.
Yipee, and another great advertisement for our wonderful corner of the photography world.

I was lucky enough to spend two evenings with photographer Matt Turner in Grange for a photo shoot to go with a story about the Ball of Light…
We did two sessions over two nights at my favorite jetty trying to get the shot above.
Technically it was really tricky to achieve the photos above, and we took many attempts to get the lighting and Ball of Light just right. Matt was as determined as I was! Each photo is a single exposure with no editing at all.
A big thanks to Matt for letting me use some of the images. Not only are the images wonderful, but the photo shoot gave me real inspiration to learn more about flash photography, and since we met I have been doing more of this. It certainly is an art in itself, but one that can add so much to an image.

On Thursday 7th July I gave an interview with SMIBS TV. They have uploaded the video to watch.
I had to get up at 3am to do it, so it takes me a while to get into it! The theme of the interview was light painting, but we talk about my story a bit. Hope that doesn’t get too boring for ya!
I thought it went well, and Peter and I discussed quite a lot in the time we had. He plays the Ball of Light movie in two parts, but you can jump over that if you have seen it before.
