Make a light tent
"In my dream, the world had suffered a terrible disaster. A black haze shut out the sun, and the darkness was alive with the moans and screams of wounded people. Suddenly, a small light glowed. A candle flickered into life, symbol of hope for millions. A single tiny candle, shining in the ugly dark. I laughed and blew it out."​

I use a large piece of laminated white paper and curve it with shoes on top, a small lamp will do, have more for a better shot and you can have that shadow background look, heres a simple one, no lamps

EDIT: Also the type of camera you use is the most important thing!!!

Hey Ty, could you take a pic of the set-up, I'm going to try this later, don't ask why I have spare poster board laying around.

Not the resulting picture but like a "behind the scenes" picture.

That first pic is done with a velvet background and probably a couple of lights. Velvet basically absorbs all light so you get a sold black background withoutany reflections.

To do something like this I believe you just place a piece of glass overtop of the velvet but you might have to edit out where the glass ends toward the rear. I've never done it before so I could be wrong...
