This shot is of my then 13 year old daughter practicing her dance jumps. It was taken in our basement with only a pool table and ambient light overhead and bouncing my flash off the pool table light. I captured this prior to her jumping out of my frame. This was taken in 1 shot and took my breath away when I loaded it up and saw the result. This was selected by the Editors of National Geographic to be published in the August 2011 NG magazine.
