How do I add elevation data from a DEM to an aerial photo?

Hi,

 

I have a feeling this is something simple that I'm overlooking, but I'm trying to add elevation data to an aerial to give the photo relief. I know I can simulate this by overlaying the DEM over the image and adjusting the transparency, but this creates a washed out image that doesn't have the contrast I'm looking for. I've attached a jpeg of what I have so far with a transparent DEM over the aerial. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

 

FYI: I'm not necessarily trying to create a 3D image, I merely want to merge the shaded relief DEM with the image.
