Re: photos of pictures in frames

A polarising filter should be able to reduce reflections - just rotate it to get the best effect.

If you don't mind the quality loss from the extra enlargement, standing further back and to one side (or up/down) might reduce the reflections. Just viewing some photographs in one exhibition I found that photos mounted at eye level required me to sit on the floor to be able to make out what was under the glare!

In all cases, make sure that the camera back is parallel to the painting to avoid distortion.

As a council of perfection, and assuming everything is under your control, remove the glass and/or fit polarising filters to both lights and camera lens, adjusted to cancel reflections.
