Living Light - Behind the Scenes, Kangaroo Island On a very stormy and windy night I managed to stay on my feet and have some fun. Here’s a little BTS. I used the incredible Olympus EM1mk2 cameras to capture all of the video and stills. It was my first time in this volume of liquid. They handled it with gusto! @olympus_au #olympusinspired www.balloflight.com.au Peace, Denis --------------------------------------------------------------- The term Ball of Light® is a registered trademark and all images are copyright of Denis Smith.  #balloflight #theballoflight #ball_of_light #the_ball_of_light   #lpwalliance #longexposure #lightpaintiing #denissmith #denissmithphotographer #lightpaintingphotography #australia #denissmithphotography #lightjunkies #orbup #spun_ups #spunups #theballoflighttool #nightphotography_exclusive

Ball of Light - Blue The sky is blue when the moon is out because the light is reflected from the sun. So the sky is blue for the same reason it is during the day. When there is no moon, the sky is black. Shot using the Olympus EM10mk3 (yes you read the right, the baby OMD!) for 183seconds at F5.6, iso 200. You can make magic with basic. @olympus_au #olympusinspired www.balloflight.com.au Peace, Denis --------------------------------------------------------------- The term Ball of Light® is a registered trademark and all images are copyright of Denis Smith.  #balloflight #theballoflight #ball_of_light #the_ball_of_light   #lpwalliance #longexposure #lightpaintiing #denissmith #denissmithphotographer #lightpaintingphotography #australia #denissmithphotography #lightjunkies #orbup #spun_ups #spunups #theballoflighttool #nightphotography_exclusive

Ball of Light - Impossible! I remember when I lived back in NZ there was a campaign starring Jona Lomu, the campaign was “impossible is nothing”. I am sure it was replicated around the globe. This shot was on a rainy, windy and cold night. Wet camera, and not level surfaces. After several very wonky spins, this. The most challenging environments and seemingly hopeless nights often result in the best stuff. Even if just in our own hearts. They are the best. Using the very weather proof Olympus EM1mk2. 60secs, F5.6 at iso 800. Also using the crazy 25f1.2! @olympus_au #olympusinspired www.balloflight.com.au Peace, Denis --------------------------------------------------------------- The term Ball of Light® is a registered trademark and all images are copyright of Denis Smith.  #balloflight #theballoflight #ball_of_light #the_ball_of_light   #lpwalliance #longexposure #lightpaintiing #denissmith #denissmithphotographer #lightpaintingphotography #australia #denissmithphotography #lightjunkies #orbup #spun_ups #spunups #theballoflighttool #nightphotography_exclusive

NUTTY NINE YEAR OLD! This is another still my 9 year old nephew Nick created whilst making the latest Living Light Tutorial. We were using an Olympus EM10mk3 with the basic kit lens.

LIGHT PAINTING FOR MEDIUM SIZED HUMANS! I am editing a Living Light Tutorial on creating ultra cheap light painting tools. Ideal for medium sized humans. This is my 9 year old nephew Nick (the star of our video) using one of the tools we made to create some magic! We had a huge amount of fun making it. For the tutorial we used the amazing little Olympus em10mk3 with their most basic pancake lens. Just to make the point, again, that you don’t need mega flash gear to make magic. @olympus_au #olympusinspired www.balloflight.com.au Peace, Denis --------------------------------------------------------------- The term Ball of Light® is a registered trademark and all images are copyright of Denis Smith.  #balloflight #theballoflight #ball_of_light #the_ball_of_light   #lpwalliance #longexposure #lightpaintiing #denissmith #denissmithphotographer #lightpaintingphotography #australia #denissmithphotography #lightjunkies #orbup #spun_ups #spunups #theballoflighttool #nightphotography_exclusive

Ball of Light - A Rare Portrait It is rare that I actually end up in a light painting image. This was at a workshop a while ago and a lovely guy, @geraint.draheim asked if he could realise an idea. We took some time away from the larger group and made this. A single shot, no composite at all. It is easily one of my favourite portraits. Encompasses everything I love. Teaching, sharing, joy and of course there is that round thing in the background. Thanks Geraint, and I’m looking forward to playing again soon mate. www.balloflight.com.au Peace, Denis --------------------------------------------------------------- The term Ball of Light® is a registered trademark and all images are copyright of Denis Smith.  #balloflight #theballoflight #ball_of_light #the_ball_of_light   #lpwalliance #longexposure #lightpaintiing #denissmith #denissmithphotographer #lightpaintingphotography #australia #denissmithphotography #lightjunkies #orbup #spun_ups #spunups #theballoflighttool #nightphotography_exclusive
