  • Dodge & Burn On Cars

    Hi all,

    The D&B technique seems to be talked about here everyday, but mostly for peoples skin.

    Does anyone use this technique when retouching cars?
    i.e to get smooth blends in the cars tones and to get rid of any harsh reflections? Basically to bring out the best shape and form of a car?

    THanks, Scott

    Dodge & Burn on cars... Uh Oh! Better get Maaco!

    Seriously, though. Of course you can use it for that. You can use the dodge & burn technique on all kinds of things... skin, cars, clothing... you name it. It's one good way to emphasize or add shading to almost anything.

      Fairly certain there was quite a bit of dodge and blur here

          There's some that would say all Dodges should burn.

            A while back, I changed the color of my buddy Dennis in Illinois' Purple '66 Malibu, "Barney"...

            He liked to threw a fit...I made a layer out of the purple and made it transparent and started applying various shades of yellow to it; it took a while to get the right tone together on it...I used the blur tool and various levels of transparencies and I eventually ended up with this. I can't say's I got to the Dodge and Burn tool on this, but what I've seen in this thread is intriguing (great looking work) and I'll try it on the next one that comes along...Cheers, John

                                Hey all,

                                So I am trying to learn the high end way of retouching, the Dodge and Burn way. BUT there are some things that are confusing me.
                                I read that you can zoom in as much as possible and D&B pixel by pixel, but I am not sure if that is just for wrinkles and hair(s) OR if...

                                I thought it might be a good idea if we cataloged the many different ways to dodge and burn in retouching.

                                I've seen approaches from "use the dodge/burn brush" to "paint on overlay layer with 50% fill" to "sample the darkest and lightest skintones, desaturate...

                                Hi dear community,

                                I've got some serious issues at dodge & burn for the time.

                                I'm doing D&B with 2 adj. layers and brush settings of either 30%Op & 5% flow or 50%opacity/3%flow. I'm using pen&tablet and I am already extremely careful.
