Phone glow

I'm sure you can figure out that this is a closeup of my cell phone's keypad. The design of the Razr is really interesting as it has a thin piece of metal with the numbers and symbols cut out of it. If you notice the B it's cut like a stencil so that the light shines through.
For this shot I turned off most of the lights and just used the glow from the keys and some soft side lighting. This technique let the weird blue light contrast with the darknened keys (normally they are silver).

I LOVE that picture, Ahamed. I could easily see that decorating the wall of a techy office.

Thanks Utenzi, that's high praise. I appreciate it. Maybe Motorola's interested?

i like it, it looks like a product shot. The only thing I might do differently is the overly bright spot in the top left. It's kinda distracting.

Looks like a picture that should be on Motorola's website. Very cool and I hope you are enjoying the Razor phone. I am still stuck with a large Clamshell phone.
