We began coverage of Elvio and Natalie's Canadian wedding last month and we continue on this month starting with bride's coverage. Watch as Jerry calms a nervous Natalie during bridal prep followed by formal portraits with bridesmaids and family on our Ice Pick section. The Posing & Lighting section continues where we left off last month focusing on posing plus sized couples. Watch and listen closely while Jerry poses the bride and groom to flatter them in the final capture though it might not seem like a "standard" pose while in progress. The Advice section features the continuation of a complete album design with brides coverage. Jerry will walk you through the next part of his design using Fundy software. This month our Ice Queen is Georgia who was part of a Melbourne shoot and she was joined by Joshua. Watch as Jerry uses available natural light including direct harsh lighting and overcast to produce beautifully lit and composed images. Chapter 91's Practice section is all about reflections and lights. Using the Ice Light for fill and some Christmas/fairy lights for accent back-lighting check out some brand new images that will inspire you to look at reflective surfaces completely differently. Ever wonder about the history of Jerry Ghionis Photography? Check out the Tip of the Iceberg section as we answer questions and discuss how Jerry got started for a recent magazine feature and also share some images of our Melbourne studio. Lastly, it's all about the 5 steps! During a recent seminar, Jerry used one basic wall as a background and created a series of portraits using his 5 step method. He will walk through those and problem solve poses that work and do not work.
