This is a simple image showing off the Repoussé tool in Photoshop cS5 Extended. The text is a simple extrusion in 3D, but I turned various faces of the resulting object to transparent. Combining this with some depth-of-field on the camera and a few spot lights, we see how shadows are affected by transparent surfaces, and also how they stack up on the shadow-catcher.

Pay special attention to the edges of the shadows and angles as they hit the back walls.
