I wish I could afford a better camera.

I’m certainly interested in the dried specimen.

I’d suggest that you try photographing in open shade (e.g., the shade of a buiding or tree with open sky above your photographic set up). This has a good chance of helping to solve your problems with glare.

Very best,
