Selfie in a bottle


In general I find that selfies are indulgent and narcissistic; however, while sipping out of my camelback bottle, I noticed a faint reflection in the straw inside the bottle. Seizing the moment, I got a quick HDR pic with my iPhone, the camera app. The only processing I did was to up the contrast with a swipe down the “straw” part of the pic in PaintFX, where my face is showing. Cropped it, and done. I didn’t even have to apply any effects.

It shows once again, that if you are ever bored with your same old go-to photographic subjects, or can’t think of any subject, try a reflection. Photos are captured light, and reflections are twisted-around light, which will make you see something new.
