Part four of Monika & Jonny's wedding is again from their second day of coverage at the amazing mansion in Sydney. In setting with limitless beautiful possible locations for photographs Jerry demonstrated the importance of looking for the light first and foremost when choosing where to shoot bridal portraits. This Ice Pick also includes the footage of Jerry creating another award winning image and one of his all-time favorites. Posing & Lighting this month features a clip from a live shoot on stage at a recent PPA convention. Jerry's challenge was to create a stunning portrait using everyday items - a scenario every wedding photographer encounters! Jerry offers his opinion on three Pro Members' work in this month's Advice section that includes a complete album, a folio of twelve images and potential competition entry. Devon is the month's Ice Queen. Jerry photographed her and Matt on an LA sidewalk in direct afternoon sunlight. This segment shows the variety of images that can be achieved even in one location and in difficult lighting conditions. Practice looks at Light Source this month, featuring everything from bounced light to Ice Lighting and flash. In Tip of the Iceberg Jerry shares his updated process for providing a same-day slideshow for his wedding clients. Icing on the Cake explores how to create depth and dimension when working with flat light or open shade. Jerry also discusses the principles of broad and narrow lighting in portraiture. There's also a handy tip on how to create shadow on a face when photographing in an open area.
