Re: Newbie:Sharing previous retouched photos and need update on dodge and burn technique.
That's great! Could you tell me in order how you did it?
I had problems with the hair along the edges of the face border.
And I'm still not getting my dodge and burn technique right.
How I would approach is,
then I'm stuck.
Assuming I'm trying the D&B technique.. I would have to create a "dodge" layer (that is add a dodge curve - brightening the highlight) and also a "burn" layer (add a burn curve - darkening the shadows).
Apply a layer mask and fill in with black.
Take a soft white brush with err 5% flow (what about opacity?) and start on the dodge layer.
This is where my problem start.. no matter how little I try to dodge the hair.. I still get those damn annoying white spots. If I dodge too little, then I don't see any difference.
Appreciate any help.
