What does shutter-click in this context?

Lightning flared in a blue sheet, giving Anderson a shutter-click of what she had come to think of –as her neighbors did –as her dooryard.

    As though you clicked the shutter of a camera – it's an instant image, especially since it will disappear in an instant when the light of the lightning disappears.
