Can a material accept a shadow but be invisible itself?

Good morning,

 

In my work I do a number of renderings where I place an object created in Solidworks into a real life photo. I've always rendered the model out against the background photo and then gone in after and added extra shadows and whatnot in Photoshop. I was thinking today that it might be helpful if there was a material that I could use to make a basic floor and wall plane that could accept the shadows cast by the model but would be, itself, invisible so the background image would show through.

 

Does this exist somewhere in Solidoworks? I'm using SW2013 btw.

 

Thanks,
