also suggest scanning the photo rotated 45 degrees on the scanner
bed. I've had some luck with that.
If you have access to a copy stand, with a lot of patience in
adjusting the lights you should be able to reduce most of the
reflections. A piece of non-glare glass over the photo will help
too. You can either mount a digital camera on the copy stand or a
traditional film camera and then scan the resulting negatives or
prints. I've had a few photos that would just not scan well at
all, but worked pretty well with a copy stand.
