I am trying to photograph shiny animal skin wallets, billfolds, fobs, etc., and I am having trouble with reflections from everything around coming through in the pictures that I am taking. I tried creating a picture box, but even the light that I have illuminating the inside of the box is distorting the image. I tried natural light outside, and the colors of the trees, the sky, my shirt are reflecting back! The glare from a muted spotlight even is troublesome. HELP! What can I do?
