Image belongs to Kuroneko_oxyz

I saw this image of a toy online and have been wondering how I can photograph an object so it is in shadow but against a pure white background like this. According to the exif, the photo was shot with f/20, ISO 100 and exposure time is 30 sec. How was the lighting set up in this situation?

  • I want to know how can you cast shadow on an object in a white background or any terms that related to it not how to get a decent white background – Brown Shady Jul 5 '15 at 14:15

  • What do you mean by "cast a shadow"? – mattdm Jul 5 '15 at 14:22
  • Do you mean "white background where the object is not well lit from the front"? – mattdm Jul 5 '15 at 15:01

It's probably on a still life table and backlit. Looks like either a LED or fluorescent softbox as the main source.

    Actually, I'd guess natural light--window light through some diffuser--curtain, paper, something. – inkista Jul 5 '15 at 18:40
