Are you ready for a brand new chapter? We are! Here's Chapter 108.

The Ice Pick section this month continues coverage of Sarah and Neal's wedding. Leaving you last month we showcased the bride's coverage. This month we bring you the "reveal" or "first look" when the bride and groom saw each other for the first time. Listen to Jerry's tone of voice and what he says setting the tone for that special moment. We then lead you to traditional formal portraits with the couple and bridal party and then some fun ones to finish off. 

Keeping things going on the Posing and Lighting section, Jerry continues where we left last month on tips photographing someone in open shade. Watch as Jerry created shadows and the "short side of the face" on location. You will notice how it brings a more three-dimensional look to the finished image. 

New month, new Chapter, and 10 brand new images on the Advice section. Remember that all Pro members are eligible to submit images for Jerry to critique and feature in future months.

We are so happy to feature our Ice Queen Agi for this month. Agi was photographed by Jerry recently and we are featuring a portion of that where she was sitting by the edge of a pool. It's a great reference where even though she didn't move much, Jerry was still able to create beautiful portraits by changing pose, angle, perspective and focal length.

Because we know that lighting scenarios are not always perfect, we wanted to feature some more images on last months focus of harsh lighting in challenging environments for the Practice section. Check out some more featured images and use these as inspiration to make the most of your next shoot with similar conditions.

You get a camera, and you get a camera and you get a camera! Ever feel like Oprah just gave out a bunch of free cameras to the guests at the weddings you are photographing? We know it's frustrating so let's talk about it and what you should and shouldn't do in this month's Tip of the IcebergHere's a hint, you should really only worry about what anyone else is doing unless it's directly affecting the ability to capture what you are there for.
