  • What kind of light is best for photographing pastels

Check this out:

Photgraphing pastels

Bright, natural but diffused light.

And since I wrote my reply to the article, I have started using a tripod... This allows me to use a longer exposure (without getting any camera shake) - and a smaller apperture to keep the whole painting well focused.

You can even get away with photographing the painting behind glass if you use a polarizing filter but I reckon you will generally get a better photo if the painting is not yet framed behind glass.
