I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'evidence photo taken?' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this definition defines the answer.

'hit during air journey' is the wordplay.
'hit' becomes 'lash' (I've seen this before).
'during' indicates putting letters inside.
'air journey' becomes 'flight' (eg in a plane).
'lash' placed inside 'flight' is 'FLASHLIGHT'.

(Other definitions for flashlight that I've seen before include "that's illuminating" , "Beamer" , "It may be needed to see" , "Electric torch" , "One beams brightly" .)
