Another month has gone by and we are ready to continue bringing new material with Chapter 107.

Getting right to it with this month's Ice Pick section, we continue coverage of Sarah and Neal's wedding. Last month we introduced this couple to you and we are now going to share the bride's coverage. Sarah was photographed in a normal hotel room which you might encounter at common weddings, and Jerry did the most to take away from the distractions of the room. He focused on the best light and cleanest space which wasn't a large area to work within. You will see all formal portraits of the bride and her family along with her bridesmaids taken in this location. 

Continuing on to the Posing and Lighting section, Jerry shares tips on photographing someone in open shade. An often misconception is that there is no direction of light with shade but even on overcast days you can still find a direction of light and create a more dynamic image with light and shadow.

For Chapter 107 the Advice section covers 10 brand new individual images up for critique. Remember that all Pro members are eligible to submit images for Jerry to critique and feature in future months.

Our new Ice Queen for this month Ana was recently photographed in Miami. With a wide variety of lighting conditions from the sun, to using a reflector, and even the Ice Light, take a look at the images Jerry created with Ana and Jose. This should give you an inspirational boost for your next shoot.

Busy area? Harsh Lighting? No other option of a location to shoot it? We will show you how to handle that in this month's Practice section. Jerry always looks for light and what he can do with it including creating great images with shadows. Check out this month's examples and tackle your next obstacle with confidence.

I love this month's Tip of the Iceberg and I hope you will too. I world can easily revolve around social media these days. With so much accessibility to what everyone else is doing or how many reactions you are getting to posts, it's very easy to get lost in it all. This month we feature a recent interview where Jerry touches upon this and how to keep running your own race.

It's a wrap with the Icing on the Cake! We continue this month featuring Ben and Katie's session which Jerry photographed in LA. Sporting a new sexy vintage look, watch as Jerry changes posing to compliment style. It's also great to note that when something doesn't work, you need to just move on and save your energy for something that you love.
