Hi
When you get a rejection from Shutterstock for "lighting problems", what is the first thing you typically do to correct it?

Look closely at the rejection.

Reason being is that it is a three part rejection so you must figure out which one or more of the three you must fix?

1. Levels
2. Curves
3. Shadow/highlights -> shadows
- or if none of the above works -
4. Selective levels/curves on the fort areas of the image.

1.. Deep black shadows or burned out areas
2.. Not correct white balance
3...Uneven light, where there is more light on one side of the object

Then I guess I'm on the right track.  Just needed some reassurance that I was on target in fixing the problem.  Many thanks.

1) Dark shadows

2) But mainly burnt out highlights, even very little zones
(cmyk 0,0,0,0 - RGB 255,255,255 - % 100,100,100).
These will become "paper color" if you print it and it is not good.
For offset printing (magazines, catalogs, etc) the white should not exceed 95-97% (3-5% if you measure in cmyk)
(I am not speaking of an "isolation white", this one must be 100% white)

Typically you link a photo for us to look at first since this question is way too broad to answer correctly.  Just consider how we have to try to answer this question- 1. was it out doors, 2. In a studio - what was your lighting source? What time of day were you shooting?  As far as we know you may have even had the lens cap on during the photo session since we have no photo or enough details to even attempt to answer this question...

Just edit the IPTC to say "Taken by my new iPhone 6!" and resubmit.
