I'm shooting some small products on a white background (white paper sweep). I'm using 2 Ego lights on each side and a 100mm lens on a tripod. The shots look fine but I seem to get a little off-white, yellowish shadow around the product i'm shooting. Any tips for making the surrounding area a nice solid white? ThanksIt is easy enough to desaturate the cast shadow in Photoshop.

It is nearly impossible to create a shadowless white background when the object is sitting on the background, unless you also light from below. If you can raise the objects above the background add an extra light, then a shadowfree hot white background is quite possible.
