    Re: Contact Shadow

    Tulack's comment is good but in this case since the light is coming from the right, there would be very minimal shadow on the bar.

    That's a nice idea, I'll try that. Thanks

    This is why it's called art. Tulack's idea is good, and in time you might become better at learning how the light reacts.

    Hi,

    I'm trying to create a composite where the leg breaks the bar but I'm having a difficult time in creating a believable shadow on the bar and on the leg, can anyone help with any ideas or point to a tutorial or something?

    Thanks

    A lot of shadows in the attached montage are wrong, but I'm not worried about most of them. The thing that really bugs me is that the main subject - the baby in the container - looks as though it is floating. I find this happens to me all the time. I have 'floating' subjects.

    I would...

    How much drop shadow?
    by Lynda99
    I really like earrings floating on white, or maybe with just a tiny bit of shadow at the bottom of the lower earring, but several have told me to anchor more distinctly.

    I've looked at the jewelry sites that were recommended as having very good technique, and the shadows vary drastically...

    Hi, I have a new cove in my studio, but unfortunately when I light it minimally I do get a noticeable collection of shadow in the bottom,

    Can someone suggest the quickest method to make this dark line less noticeable and a smoother gradient with least effort!

    Thanks...
