I've been using my phone for over a year now. Angles and lighting with a good base. I like to use a stone or wooden base to rest the razor etc on. A dark room and a torch angled to the side of the apparatus. Zoom in. Make sure the picture is not too busy. Anyway that's how I like to do it.
This is absolutely true.
During the warm season I prefer to take SOTD pictures outside using natural light, shadow and natural backgrounds. There are so many nice environments and set ups around that can be used for an attractive composition.
