Re: D&B Attempt

Thanks for the help guys
Im lightening the darker pixels, I guess its becasue I have the flow at 100% and opacity at about 6 - 8 %

I'm zooming in and out on the image, to see the changes close and how they look at 100%

I didn't use the 50% gray method, I just dodged and burned right onto the image.

You have to use the 50% gray layer set to Soft Light for the effect that everyone is referring to. There are a couple good tutorials on here and I watched a really detailed YouTube video on it the other day as well.

Good luck.
