Retouching Eyes

I've seen four or five times in various threads where ppl enhance eyes using "color burn" and "color dodge"


Can someone elaborate on the steps??

Re: Retouching Eyes

anyone?



Personally, I retouch eyes by using a levels mask, but I'd be interested to know other ideas.

Re: Retouching Eyes

Some time ago I posted a tutorial on the basics of burn and dodge within the context of painting with light:

It doesn't cover eyes specifically, but it covers the basic principles of b&d.

Re: Retouching Eyes

I'm knowledgable with both PWL and D&B.

I thought it was a little more intricate than that considering it was within the context of the eyes.

Re: Retouching Eyes

See Betty Davis Eyes in Eismann's 'Restoration and Retouching". Very Good

Also, to remove red or any color cast in the eye whites, create a blank layer and set its blending mode to color. Use a soft white/black brush set to Hue and 10 to 20%. Brush the color away. This process removes color. Also good on yellow teeth.

Use Dodge/Burn layer to remove veins in eyewhites and lighten if desired. Or clone/heal veins away.

I use this on most portraits so I made an action that creates the set of required layers and places them in a group. Very quick to use and very good results.
