Removing ashphalt shingles

I'm installing a skylight. Going to remove a 3' x 3' square of shingles, then cut hole in deck. I'd like to be able to reuse some of the shingles around the flashing.

Any tricks to getting the shingles up so that they are in decent shape and reusable?

Depending how old they are.
You need to loosen the tab and insert a wonder bar under it and pry up the nails.
you will loose some for sure but not all.
