How to Shoot Reflective Surfaces


Can someone help me with shooting books? I am having trouble with the glare. To avoid the glare, I am turning off the main lighting and adjusting the exposure setting on my Kodak EasyShare CX6230. Are they any other techniques or methods I can do?

  Have your lighting come from more of an angle - closer to 90 degrees.

  1) I'm using regular ceiling lighting. I'm doing low-budget photography. 2) Would 90 degrees be from the object? Wouldn't that be directly on top?

  I meant the angle with camera and the light should be closer to 90 degrees. But since you're using ceiling light, use something to prop the book up at an angle so you don't get glare.
