well, you have to find out that by yourself, when you notice that you got make a dark spot TOO light the ''light curve' is then to 'aggressive'

do you get what im trying to say?

Re: Dodge and Burn Technique

nice but too artificial this is good http://fc03.deviantart.com/fs30/f/20...hingsMagic.png - but IMO it's impossible to get so soft skin with dodge and burn , must be some other way to do this. And I think that it was made without blur or median.

I'm not sure how others do it but I try to select a loose sample of the darkest or lightest area I will need to change.

Once I adjust the curve as needed I go little farther just to be sure then refill the mask with black to hide all.

Remember you are using low opacity brushes and usually you want to build the effect slowly for control..otherwise use more than one stroke to lighten or darken.

Re: Dodge and Burn Technique

I like working with curve layers dodge and burn. It's less destructive than cloning and you get to retain original skin texture. (I don't like using the healing tool for skin). Here is an example done with curve layers dodge and burn. Caution: nudity

Thats why I love the dodge and burn technique, you get really smooth images, but with a beautiful real skin texture!

also very nice job toan tai!
