the basic trick is to use a blank white background image i.e, only white, and then build your lighting map to that background before added the sun light you need to make your shadow

 

p.s, I think your teacher wants you to understand the difference between shadow and reflexion... shadow has no colour but reflexion does so yes any [non white] studio light will defuse your model colours to some small amount

Yes, that looks like you are getting 100% white edges. 

We had accomplished 100% white on some tests, but then the colors on the label would be blown out or lose vibrancy.

It always felt like the 3 goals I listed above were fighting each other.

 

Is there a custom light setup you're using there or a default? Curious if a color label would produce vibrnatly in your example.

Thanks for the response!
