"Photographing a text off a silver plate.. I知 stuck."


IL
          

I am trying to photograph the silver case of a Torah scroll(which is Hebrew scriptures written on parchment).
It is estimated to be over 400 years old. The case I am told is made of silver and has a beautiful handcrafted design.
There is an area approximately 6 inch rectangle that has text on it and part of it is hard to read.
Any suggestions how to photograph this area to bring out the text. I have either a 50mm, 105mm lens that I could use.
What suggested settings (indoors) and what PS C6 processing technique should I use I知 a novice with PS.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Ben
