    Documenting and photoing team sets - any input is appreciated!

    So I've been slowly taking pictures of my Rockies team sets, here are a few if any of you are interested:

    2018 Topps Series 1 Independence Day /76:


    2018 Topps Series 1 Father's Day Blue /50:


    2015 Topps Series 1 & 2 Pink /50:


    2015 Topps Update Pink /50:


    Any comments on how to better photo team sets? I'm a total noob photographer, and was wondering if anyone had decent tips to produce better images of 15-20 cards at a time.

    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    If it were me scanning team sets, I think I would scan the cards on my scanner bed (3 wide by 3 rows) and then resize if desired and stitch the images together into one huge image.

    I don't know many good ways to photograph cards just by laying them down. I always get too dark (no or ineffective flash) or flash glare off the card surfaces. The scanner would give a better view of the front of the card plus eliminate a lot of chances of getting glare or image being too dark.

    I thought about scanning them in the 9 cards format, but I wanted to see them all together in one photo. I figured with the photo quality you can get from smartphones now there would be techniques to minimize glare and produce quality photos. However I do not know them!
