    There's a tool called burn - select it and get it to about the right size and click it once or twice in the right place. That should do it nicely.

    Just tried that and it made the shadow darker. Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

    That would be because I should have said dodge, not burn!! I should try thinking one of these days. It's on the same tool, right click to change it.

    LMAO, this will take some work. I copied your image and tried it out myself and the elder gentleman now looks like he has bleach stains on his shirt. Heh. Have fun.

    I would try the 'Close Stamp Tool' in Photoshop.

    I totally agree with the stamp tool. thats my personal favorite photoshop tool... works great for shadows you just have to take your time and use one of the smallest settings... and dont forget to save it its going to take you more than one session...

    I'll try the stamp tool tomorrow. Didn't have much luck with the dodge, at least without alot of practice.

    I used tungs. lighting , 250 w for the background on a boom.
    1 500 watt with satin umbrella.

    and something very stupid to do, my sb800 wireless from the left.(which is what cast that shadow) Never tried it before and I was short on space.

    First time I've ever done a Family portrait and learned some very important lessons.

    The singles and Doubles turned out great...just the group thing sucked big time.

    Thanks for the help.!

    yeah.. everything was sounding good till you used that direct strobe... you should invest in something that diffuses it alittle to get rid of those nasty shadows...
