While this is not exactly the right forum since I'm not asking about photographing a pen I thought I would try asking the question.

Below is one of the bottle stoppers that I have cast and turned.

As you can see reflections are a real problem. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can better photograph these kinds of shiny objects?

I tried asking about this on a photography forum but have had no replies. All suggestions gratefully received!:smile:

Btw it is an Eastern Hemlock cone embedded in clear Alumilite.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Stan. Room lights are off and no flash used. I've used a polarizing filter to reduce the reflection as much as I can. What do you mean by filtering the light? I'm thinking I also need to maybe drape something black around my frame so it can't be seen in the reflection.
