    Does anyone use a large turntable for 360 photos?

    We do! We have a 16' table that we use in the large studio. It holds up to 4 ton. I would suggest looking towards the direction of car turntables. You might need to do a little wiring change to make it able to stop at given angles, but it will do what you need. The down side is that they are...

    What do photographers do during winter??

    When it is slow, we clean the studio, build more rigs and get the word out. By the way, I let Word out this morning, and he has not come back for his lunch yet.
