Re: Help with shadows

Not sure what the key is in Mac, but on the PC hitting "j" in Develop Mode will highlight any pure black or pure white pixels. Very useful. I think there is also a toggle switch at the bottom left corner of the picture That does the same thing.

i agree with the other person that the bigger problem is the secular highlight down the front. Move your lights up or to the side to eliminate it, or consider a composite shot with slightly different lights to throw different catches; just stitch together the parts that aren't getting hit. Do the same for a shot without the item and you can also eliminate the reflection.
