Technique for beginners: Shadowing for large 3 dimensional objects.
Large objects like locks, fluffy flowers, and boxes, should always get a skewed shadow with a maximum edge softening on the shadow. If one puts a simple drop down shadow, the object will lose it's 3-d effect and look more like a cut out. As an example, take a peek at the desk you're working on right now. Look down at your cell phone and camera. Do you see the skewed, wide shadows with soft edges?
