Oswalds backyard Photo shadows


I recreated the infamous Lee Harvey Oswald “Backyard Rifle Photos” in Photoshop.

I wanted to light it so that shadows dropped straight down Oswald’s nose AND see IF that caused the shadows at his feet.

One of the conspiracy theories is that the backyard photos of Oswald were faked – the evidence supposedly being that- why does the nose shadow go straight down when the leg shadows go backwards?

I wanted to see if an After Effects “3D Space” model that had lighting that caused straight down shadows on the nose would also cause the leg shadows to go backwards. ( I put in a thick nose that you probably can’t see in that wide shot).

I used a spot light and clicked “CAST SHADOWS” on the light. But it still doesn’t cast the shadows I wanted.
Any thoughts on how to cast these shadows?
