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.

Re: photos of pictures in frames

I suppose the first questions to ask are
1. Is it a one off problem, or are you looking for general rather than a specific solution?
2. Are you troubled by the reflection of the light source or reflections of other objects in the room?

You need to have even lighting; you could avoid most/all room reflections by working inside a series of black screens or curtains; by using two lights (one at each side) carefully adjusted to give even lighting, both with polarising filters and a third on the camera lens you should be able to reduce reflections from the lights.

Re: photos of pictures in frames

I have had to take photographs of photographic prints and paintings in the past but do not own any studio lighting. There are now many choices of artificial lighting that you could use but I have always chosen outside on the north side of a building i.e. in the shade. You will have to set your White Balance to suit but I only use Raw so adjustment can be later. I almost never use any filters but this is one case where a polarising filter may be necessary as Stephen advises. It is much easier to remove reflections at the capture stage. As for settings, I would use a tripod so a low speed can be used with a low ISO and no chance of camera shake. You can probably just use your normal method of exposure though I would normally meter grass or a grey card and set the camera manually for this.
