    One of the issues that come up with photogrammetry is how to recreate shiny objects, since photogrammetry uses optical measurements.

    Shinier objects are harder to read, and most of the time photogrammetry software are not able to find features in those parts. Here is an older post of one of our colleagues when she was just starting which may be useful in your case:

    It is recommended to cover the shiny parts of your area of interest with some kind on washable matter. It can be the spray mentioned in that post, or you can use some kind of powder (flour, baking powder) if you know it is not going to ruin your object.

    Control points are also recommended in this instances. You can find more about control points here:
