How does a person set up a speedlight(s) for photographing a painting? I tried a Nikon SB800 in the camera hotshoe. I set the strobe to TTl exposure with spot metering.

But I felt like the results weren't capturing the full range of color or detail of my wife's Acrylic painting. She sold it, along with other paintings, and wanted a record of her work. The books I have on flash lighting say nothing about static, flat subject matter.

Thanks,

Gary in Santa Monica
