Jumping for Joy

My get-pushed partner challenged me to try using rear curtain / slow sync flash with icm or a moving subject. I didn't even know my camera could do this.
I recognize that game ... except it is a kids game called 'Mouse Trap'!!
We gave it to our grandkids for Christmas this year and have been playing it ever since!
You have done well with this challenge and caught the motion perfectly!
Wishing you and yours Peace, Joy, and Happiness Today and Always, Tim!
Merry Christmas!

April, thanks for the challenge. This was so much fun! It was hard to get the blur while still getting the rest of the exposure right. It took a lot of tries. I'm eager to try this again. Challenges like this one are my favorite part of get-pushed. I learn to do things that I'd never heard of, and in this case, learn about a setting on my camera that I'd never used. @aecasey

Wow, I am admirative. I do not have the slightest idea on how you got such a good result, but it must have required patience and dedication. Well done !

That is such a fun shot! Great to discover a new function on the camera.

@etienne My get-pushed partner sent me to this web site for instructions: https://www.digital-photo-secrets.com/tip/3326/how-to-use-rear-curtain-flash-for-creative-photos
From there, it is a lot of experimentation with ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. I used my finger on the other side of the see-saw. I would click the shutter, then flip the diver. It didn't take long to figure out a good shutter speed so that the flash happened at the top of the jump. It was fun. I think I'm going to try another one, today.
