Re: Get Dodge and Burn under control

In some cases D&B doesn't work for me.
As an example: a dark brown spot surrounded by light, red pixels will always stay visible. When you start to lighten the dark brown spot it will become closer to the red coloured piwels but it will always have a brownish tint.
Therefore I prefer a healing or clone brush that takes the surrounding pixel colours into consideration.
Just my 2 cents, correct me if I'm wrong.

yes cli, often color will shift, some spots will really stand out.....that's why you should do your D&B work, then do your color adjustments last. Leave your D&B layer underneath your color moves. This way, you can go back, let's say round 2, and refine your D&B and not worry about your overall color adjustments shifting, since they'll be on top.

after you refine your 2nd round D&B, and the color doesn't look right in spots, you can go to your color moves folder and adjust more, usually done with a localized curve or something.

Re: Get Dodge and Burn under control

cli and drouber,

To really get D&B under control, you should use Softlight mode instead of Overlay. Overlay is way too strong. Also, sample the darker colors (hair, shadows, nostrils, etc...) in the image instead of using pure black. Chris (criket1961) explained this a while back.

EDIT: Read his latest blog.

Using the softlight technique you are not limited to brushing on the composite view. You can also select one channel and paint. Or two channels at a time. Or if you are in CMYK three channels.This allows you to fix many color casts and situations like the one you mentioned.
