    I am new to the forum and have a question about lighting for taking a pickture of a framed piece of art. I have been into photography for the last 8 years, but mostly wildlife and people. Very little inside work and not to much flash photography. The framed peice that I am trying to photograph has glass that is very reflective. Any suggestions of how to eliminate the reflections and get a clear picture of the peice. I have a Nikon D50 that I am trying to use for the picture.

    Thank you!!! The forum is great for advice:thumbup: I am sure I will be back.

    Probably a better way. Perhaps use a board to the side of the image to block the shadow (get someone to hold it) and use a tripod.

    If that does not work, perhaps you may be able to bounce some soft flash?

    You could try to use a polariser.
