Re: D&B Actual techniques which professional uses.

Hi, I am a newbie and in noway a pro. But first, I think a pro will ever dismiss any tool or technique out of hand. The techniques used will depend on the results being sought. Usually i find that on a high res image you will use different dnb techniques for different parts of the the image. I usually DnB with dual curves and the soft light technique, but also clone stamp and healing brush set to lighten/darken mode and at low opacity—as with most things in PS— can also be effective in removing blemishes/evening out tones without leaving the normal telltale signs of healing and cloning.

For retouches such glamour etc blurs—at low opacity— can be used, along with DnB, to save time but also to give a look that DnB alone can not, or would take to long to, get.

Just my thoughts, but remember as-long as the end image looks how u or the client wants, no one will care, or even see— how u did it.
