Default Re: How do you get rid of shadows?

I found a cheap trick to help with lighting: If your camera has a flip up flash (like the Canon Rebel EOS, what I have) then take a business card and cut slits into it to slide over the flash. I use scraps of photopaper because of the high gloss. It will diffuse the light, bouncing it up and around your item for a softer flash. Should help cut down or even eliminate the shadows all together. The first link is my picture showing how the trick works, and the second is the link to the site that I got the trick from.
