Re: Tips for photographing art?

There are a lot of threads on this. Get a flat field lens (Nikon 60mm Micro is popular) Use polarisers on two lights, one either side of the work, etc. I find an overcast day does what I need though. Camera on tripod, stopped down to f/8. Here's a slideshow of 11 of my paintings.
