1. No Flash Photography!

Please do not use flash as it can reflect from the glass or gloss varnish. To avoid using a flash, pictures can be taken outside in the shade and the picture angled forward to reduce reflections. 

The flash can be disabled on most cameras. Normal digital cameras normally produce better results than camera phones.
