Creating shadows in Adobe Photoshop

Introduction

This tutorial will hopefully help you create more realistic shadow effects in adobe photoshop.

Types of shadows

for the purposes of this tutorial i have defined two sorts of shadows and have elected to call them major shadows and minor shadows. If there is a proper term for this distinction then mail it to me and i'll correct it.

Major shadows is how i will refer to those cast by an object onto the ground or other surfaces around it.

Minor shadows is how i will refer to smaller shadows cast by an object onto itself such as under a chin or hat.
