Re: Remove background shadows using Lightroom?

Not sure it is best to REMOVE the shadows completely, (unless you are replacing the background that is) I think it is usually best to reduce the harshness of them. I do that by selecting each area with a selection tool. I use the pen tool, and then fill those selections with the proper background color, and then simply reduce the opacity of that layer to say 50%. Here is the before and after effects.

I have been wondering how to do this as well, and I see that there was a solution to removing the shadow from your photo. Could you share how you were able to do this in Lightroom?

Thank you
