Keep­ing the ISO low will give you clean shots with­out an ex­cess of grainy ar­ti­facts. ISO 100 to 200 is ideal. Each lens is dif­fer­ent, but an aper­ture in the mid­dle range (f8 or f11 typ­i­cally) gives the sharpest re­sults. Al­low the cam­era to de­ter­mine shut­ter speed by shoot­ing in Aper­ture Pri­or­ity mode.

Mount the cam­era on a tri­pod and dis­able any im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion fea­tures. A por­trait/telephoto lens will re­duce glare and room re­flec­tions. Place a white card next to the paint­ing for white bal­ance. Use the two-sec­ond timer to pre­vent you shak­ing the cam­era when press­ing the shut­ter.
