Re: How to achieve 'perfect' whites in Hi Key?

That response from Alan is handy.

I agree with some of the others - I would have gone for curves in LR. Just move the sliders so you are only affecting a narrow band of highlights (you can find the cut-off by clicking the dropper and hovering over the background).

Pull highlights up severely and, if you don't like the resulting high local contrast in the upper midtones, even them out as well.

It is possible that this response makes no sense at all but LR users (and full Camera Raw users too) should get it.

Of course for inanimate objects, getting the 'studio' lighting right first should be possible.
