This month's coverage Monika & Jonny's wedding takes place on the second day of their celebration at the house they rented in Sydney. Ice Pick brings you a selection of images, straight out of camera that feature various couple poses and several individual bride and groom images all taken in natural daylight. Posing & Lighting brings you further coverage of Jerry's posing masterclass. This month's class gives you some great tips on posing a family and how he determines the architecture of each pose. He shares several great poses that you can incorporate into your own photography repertoire. There is also a recap from Jerry of the last few Posing & Lighting segments. Advice returns once again to its original format, as Jerry offers a constructive critique of a Pro Member's album design, a folio of images and a single image that may (or may not) be suitable for competition submission. Jerry's critique is always positive and aimed at helping members to improve their technique. Ice Queen this month is a study of what can be achieved in one single location and one single light source as Jerry takes a series of images using nothing more than an illuminated sign. Variations in cropping and perspective show that many images are possible in a location that most would walk past without a second glance. This theme and approach is continued in this month's Practice segment. As Jerry uses a similar light source but uses it to creatively illuminate a couple and even a small group shot. Tip of the iceberg feature another guest post that discusses the fear of failure. The Icing on the Cake is a fantastic example of how Jerry creates couple portraits on the street. This segment offers another opportunity to see and hear Jerry's 5-step methodology for creating the perfect photograph.
