If I use a lasso select then when I fill the background white it leaves striking edges in the shadows of the objects.

If I try to color-correct or play with exposure it also affects the highlights of the bullets that have the same tones as the background.

Any tips greatly appreciated!

Masks.

one to mask background to keep detail in weapons

one to mask ammunition in order to keep highlights from burning out yet keep contrast.
