I'm attempting to take pictures of small lapel pins for a company that I work for, but I'm having a few issues. These lapel pins of chrome silver and gold finishes, so they reflect everything very, very well, which is bad because then the silver parts of the objects reflect as black from my lens and camera. I tried moving the pins at a slight angle to get the reflection of the inside of the light box instead, since it's white and it made the colors spot on, but the angle required to get a perfect reflection makes it impossible to take a picture where the entire pin is within focus.
I then tried taking pictures of the same pin at different focus points and stitching them together in Photoshop, but then they definitely don't look anywhere near as good and clear as some of the other pictures of the non-reflective pins.
What other things can I try to get good, straight on pictures of these reflective pins without losing the quality of the reflective surface?
