Chapter 102 is here and we hope you are excited to keep pushing yourself further as we bring you some new tips. 

We pick up this months Ice Pick section with continued coverage of Travis and Sarah's wedding. Completing coverage of the bride and groom last month, we now start this new chapter right after ceremony coverage. Jerry begins with a large group photo and then family, followed by bride and groom portraits. Be sure to pay close attention during this month's Ice Pick as Jerry creates a bit of his action/reaction shots he's known for. 

Next up, the Posing and Lighting section this month covers two common scenarios: framing a subject using environment and also how to handle uneven lighting. Jerry pays special attention to avoid uneven shadows on the subject's face which would be distracting in the shot.

Our members love submitting images for critique, and we have a large number that we want to get to so this month we did just that for the Advice section. Jerry picked a single image from 10 different Ice Society members and provided them constructive criticism to further the success of the image. 

With a new chapter, we bring you a new Ice Queen. Here is Stefanie along with her boyfriend Pat. Jerry photographed these two in New York City a few months back and fell in love with Stefanie's hair. Check out some of the images which were captured using the Omega Reflector as well. 

Distracting elements and congested streets....two things you love during a session right? Probably not. We tackle these two things in this month's Practice section. Jerry shows you how to deal with crowded streets or an area that might not be "picture-perfect". We hope this pushes you to find the beauty in the cards you are dealt. 

We are covering something a bit different this month with the Tip of the Iceberg. Jerry shares some personal projects he's working on and how he is bringing them to life. This is an absolute great read for those who are in a funk and need some inspiration to get creative. We hope you enjoy it.

To close things out for Chapter 102, we take you back to Travis and Sarah's wedding and share some of their wedding ceremony coverage. This Icing on the Cake feature shows how we handled a tight timeline and yet still were able to properly cover the bride and groom.
