Chapter 114 is now live and we hope you are ready to continue learning from this month's great content. 

We continue first with coverage of Simon and Sekha's wedding in Switzerland. In this Ice Pick section, Jerry will take you through bride's coverage along with images captures with the bridesmaids. You will notice that Sekha is a bit on the reserved side and Jerry will keep this in mind while trying to evoke emotion.

How romantic is candlelight? Have you ever thought of us as the main light source for photography? Probably not, but Jerry does just that in this month's Posing and Lighting section. Learn from the techniques used to take several quick portraits.

Chapter 114's Advice section features a brand new set of single images from our members. Listen to the feedback Jerry provides on how to take these images to the next level.

Our Ice Queen this month is Ellie. Jerry really focused on movement during this shoot whether that was actual movement from Ellie or through her hair or tassels on her dress. You will learn how movement can really create a different feel for your next portrait session or wedding.

I bet a parking garage isn't the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of a fashion shoot. That was, however, the set for these images and we think you will rethink what a good location is when you have the right lighting available. Jerry shows a quick "go to" set up when working in an urban environment for our Practice section.

Can we please have our session at the same spot you have photographed what seems like hundreds of times? How often have you been asked by a client to use a location that has been very overused? Read along and check on examples of how to hint at those locations and keep your session looking very different than what everyone else may be doing. This is a sure way to separate you and it's all available in this month's Tip of the Iceberg section.

Want an easy-to-do setup that will always "wow" your clients? We have you covered for the Icing on the Cake. Jerry demonstrates an easy setup using a blank wall and directional lighting. You will want to use this for every session going forward.
