Effects of using glass bottles in photography

Glass bottles and jars come in a variety of colors, sizes, shapes and textures. As such, they're the perfect medium to distort photos and offer a dreamy effect. Choose bottles and jars that offer some translucency, as light plays an important role in creating a unique perspective of a subject.
Use different shapes for different results. For example, photographing a subject through a curved surface will offer a different result than photographing a subject through a flat surface. Photography is all about perspective; experiment with different bottles and jars to create unusual patterns of light and exaggerate the colors and features of a subject.
