I'm working on a project and I need to photograph picture frame moldings. However, unlike regular catalog images, I'm photographing 1 ft. long segments of moulding that will be used in a software program to tile them in a manner that will simulate a full size picture frame. The problem I'm having is figuring out how to create a flat lighting setup that will bring out the color and detail, without accentuating the highlights in such a way makes the tiled images appear seamless. There must be a way to do this, but I've been searching online for hours an all of my searches return sites selling frame picture frames. Grr. Anyones help would be GREATLY appreciated!! Here's an example of what I'm trying to eliminate when I splice the images together.
