This month see the start of a new features wedding. Ice Pick begins with the Groom's coverage for a change from George and Antonette's wedding. This wedding is more traditional and very typical of the kind weddings Jerry is asked to photograph. In Posing & Lighting Jerry continues to explore just what can be achieved in an ordinary hotel lobby using existing objects and lighting in creative ways for his portraits. Advice showcases another member's folio and six individual images, all of which are critiqued by Jerry. Renee is this month's Ice Queen who modeled for Jerry along with her husband during an LA workshop. Practice looks at how two ordinary looking locations can be used to create stunning portrait images with a very different look. The Tip of Iceberg is a special look back at Jerry's twenty year career as a photographer and incorporates the question of reinventing your brand. The Icing on the Cake showcases the most member requested subject; that of how Jerry determines his exposures and his thoughts on finding the best light.
