by V Renée,

You thought you did everything right. You composed your frame beautifully. You moved your camera remarkably. You captured your shot at a high frame rate so you could slow it all down in post to make it look all cinematic and gorgeous, but—some incandescent or fluorescent lights decided to crash the party and cause some ugly flickering.
