More often than not it seems I am apologizing for my poor photography skills when I post a photo of one of my straight razor restoration projects. I rely on a window ledge and hope for good lighting. Even then it seems the shadow or glare on the curve of the blade obscures the lovely etching I tried so hard to preserve or it just did not show show off the blade in a good way. I have an iPhone, so I have nothing fancy in terms of equipment. What are your (inexpensive) tips and tricks for photographing your straight razors?
