Young and as­pir­ing brother-and-sis­ter duo Rémy and Esmé are tak­ing the pho­tog­ra­phy world by storm. Their tech­ni­cal skill level in both cre­ative think­ing and light­ing set­ups al­ready goes way be­yond their years.

This shot by Rémy and Esmé is the classic still-life in liq­uid, which has been seen in many print ad­verts and bill­boards. The twin chal­lenges are to freeze the fast-mov­ing wa­ter bub­bles, and to light the whole scene so that the sub­ject looks fresh and ap­peal­ing. Achiev­ing these goals re­quires a great deal of prepa­ra­tion and plan­ning.

“We se­lected a bot­tle of Fen­ti­mans Rose Le­mon­ade, a full glass, fake ice, ripe lemons and a pink rose,” Esmé tells us. “Wa­ter­proof­ing var­nish was ap­plied to the pa­per la­bels, and the room was blacked out.” calde­court­pro­duc­
