  • Help with Dodge & Burn?

    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 it is for all the skin.
    I really want to learn the D&B way of retouching so any help would be great.

    Thanks.

    do a search - theres sooo much on here about it, and start practicing it. The more you do it, the more you see to fix, the closer in you zoom.

      If you want to learn how to use Dodge and Burn, don't limit yourself to wrinkels, hair and skin. When you know what the tools can and can't do, you will know when to use them.

        Hi flint! Take a look at these:

        you don't really need to zoom 500% and do D&B pixel by pixel, unless you really need it for some kind of detail, otherwise, you gonna lose focus. And you can also use for all the skin, to draw the highlights and shadows.

            by Doug Nelson
            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...

            i.e to get smooth blends in the cars tones and to get rid of any harsh reflections? Basically to bring out the...

            by Pericu
            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.
            I'm using a...
