Re: Help - Fix / Restoration

ya, so its not just my take. I would think that the photographer would have noticed that his/her lights were hitting the floor too, but guess it wasn't adjusted properly.

Very nice work Gary.
You could copy the shadow part & use hard light blend X 2

Re: Help - Fix / Restoration

Yes, Kate, with studio lighting, it is really rare to see less than two shadows. Your eyes use the shadow as a reference, and even though you may not notice the shadow, you will know something is wrong when it isn't there.
Gary, Even though you have a dark floor, you would still see evidence of a shadow. The only time you wouldn't, is if the feet are totally obscured in black.
Ok, that being said, you are asking, what about if the light is straight overhead? You would still have evidence of a shadow. It may be very small, possibly just a tiny edge around the feet. But there will be one. Take a look around the room and see how many shadows you can spot. Virtually everything will have a shadow of some sort. Again, if it is there, the object is properly grounded. If it isn't, it will appear to be floating in mid air.

Shadows are so common, that people tend to not even notice. But your mind knows it should be there, and uses it as a clue to place the object in it's surroundings.

Dave.
