Rémy and Esmé reveal how to create a still-life capture with a refreshing twist!
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.” caldecourtproductions.com
