I have some family pictures that I wish to copy but I do not have the negatives. I have tried to take a picture of the pictures with my Nikon FE2 using a 35-105 zoom set on macro. However, the pictures come out with a glare. Is there a trick to this process?

Thanks Jake

Do you have access to a scanner? With your computer and a good scanner and printer, you can make pretty good copies. Otherwise, I think it's a matter of using very diffuse light and being absolutely sure the camera and target are truly parallel to each other (so your photo is all in focus and not distorted). Why am I answering this? I have no expertise in this area.
