Stand on a chair and shoot from just slightly above.
The overhead lights and your camera flash will all
be reflecting toward the floor, and not directly
back into your lens. To minimize angular distortion
from tipping the board or from viewing/shooting
off-center, use your optical zoom and stand back a bit.
That might require a slightly longer exposure. Take
a few shots to bracket the required exposure time.
If you have a high-end digital camera with settable
aperature, you already know all the above, so don't
read this. :-)
