Getting even closer... I made a large black flag to cover the top by gluing a 30"x54" sheet of black seamless paper to a piece of cardboard and cut a hole in the center to shoot through. 20200716-DSC_0899a by adamhiram, on Flickr The results looked about as perfect as I could hope for, with absolutely no reflection in the glass. 20200716-DSC_0903a by adamhiram, on Flickr Or so I thought... I took another test shot with the blue sticker removed, and I can still see a faint dark circle in the middle where the cutout is for the camera lens. You have to stare at it for a moment to see it, but it's definitely there if you look for it. 20200716-DSC_0907a by adamhiram, on Flickr So that leaves me wondering if this is the best I can do, or if there is a way to improve on this setup. Something tells me at this point that reflection will probably not be noticeable 95% of the time, but I wonder if digitizing something with solid dark colors near the center would still show it. Some additional thoughts I had on improving this setup: Raise the camera higher and use a longer lens - that will get it further away from the light source, and the inverse square law should ensure there is enough falloff to avoid illuminating the black flag or lens. However I already have my tripod height maxed out at about 4.5' and I'm already shooting at 85mm, so I'd be looking at additional equipment and standing on a stool to accomplish this. Use the shift part of a tilt-shift lens to move the camera out of frame entirely. This would probably be a decent idea if I had a tilt-shift lens. Shoot from an angle to keep the camera's reflection out of frame, then fix the perspective in post. This would be easy enough, and is something I occasionally do with the guided transform tool to fix vertical lines, but it seems like an unnecessary degradation of the image. What about using "museum glass" that includes an anti-reflective coating? I have wondered from the start if the main problem wasn't simply that I was using the cheapest possible sheet of glass from the hardware store. I welcome any additional suggestions or feedback to improve and/or simplify this copy setup. I can't help but feel like I am reinventing the wheel, but I haven't had much luck finding a recipe for a "standard" setup to do this.
