  Evenly light it, two lights at obtuse angles one on each side, try to be parrallel to the picture so the edges don't slant, and keep picture flat and shoot. If it's glossy, back up with a small telephoto may minimize your own reflection. And you may have to turn off room lights. But there isn't too many different ways to do it.
