    I have always been amazed how some retail sites show photos of shoes. I am wondering if they use a special lighted box and set the shoe in different angles before taking the photos. If you go to any of the retail shoe websites, you will some very nice photos of them. Would making such a gizmo to take photos of my own shoes be difficult? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Some use product tables. We reviewed one here Kaiser Studio in a Box and there are many others on the market.
    Others use light tents like this Lastolite Softcube. Again there are many options available.

    If you are into DIY here are some components that can be used to create a "cheap" turntable. http://www.servocity.com/html/gearmotor_gearbox.html
    As you are in the USA you do not have to pay 20% vat and $40-70 postal charges :=))

    This not a product shot but a software test for a pan system it shows what can be achieved using a turntable: Useful video starts at 00:59 secs http://www.vimeo.com/45824558
