When we spoke to the Pikapika team back in 2006, it was clear that light painting is one of those crafts that are easy to learn but hard to master (just take a look at the DN title I created for proof of the latter!). One aspect of light painting that didn’t occur to me was that it might be life changing, however Denis Smith, the subject of Sam Collins’ short documentary Ball of Light, found it to be his way back to an enriched life after loosing his way in near financial ruin. If the triumph of the human spirit angle isn’t quite your thing, Ball of Light is still worth a watch if only for the damn cool pictures Denis takes by turning slowly whist spinning a light!
