I'm more of a point and click person with a basic understanding of photography which prolly 75% of people on here are. I think if someone could write an idiots guide to taking photos of framed and unframed posters it would help enhance the quality of the site

the setup on the left is a camera on a motorized vertical track (copy stand) above the platform where the art goes. there is a light off to the right of the camera (next to the monitor) and another out of the frame to the left. the lights are at around 30 - 45 degrees to the plane of the art so that the light ricochets off the art without causing glare to reflect back to the lens.
it's kind hard to explain, but hopefully the picture helps. thats about a $40k set up there. I do just as fine (for the interweb) with a Canon G9 on automatic.
