D&B Actual techniques which professional uses.

After reading some of thread I'm unable to get the results with D&B. Professional companied wants only D&B to smooth the skin alonth with evenout tones.

I gone through lots of thread I found only that they says use only "Dodge and Burn" Put one layer for Dodge and Second for Burn and even out skin etc.etc.

It it much helpful for all intermediate retoucher if profressionals and expericenced retouchers put turorials with actually probmletic image and show how nicely this work can be done.

I agree, it seems like when people do D&B tuts its on people with damn near already flawless skin. I wish i can help, but im a degrunge freak myself.

Re: D&B Actual techniques which professional uses.

The problem with the D&B is that most people don't grasp the time you actually have to invest on making it properly, I tried with one of the portraits I took and after a while I also knew that after the first pass of D&B I had to do another to clear patches of skin that where discovered after flattening the skin. Its a big job and I found out I don't have the patience to do it. So as another poster said I'm a degrunge freak

There is a reason you only use D&B on jobs that you either get paid for or that you deem it necessary to spend x ammount of hours doing it.

And its when the hours rack up that you do remember the old rule that a good makeup-artist is always cheaper than doing it in Photoshop
