    I use default soft round brush for pretty much everything I DNB. They should really deal with color on that image, it's a nice tonal work, though.

        If you're doing smaller stuff you should try adjusting brush hardness to somewhere between 20-40%. It often makes things more controllable.

          Good tip for things like lines/wrinkles/strands/lashes. But 99% of the brushing is round soft brush.

            I don't really care for extremely soft brushes on smaller things. Obviously if it's large and I need to control whether it bleeds over, a mask is necessary. I find I'm often in the 20-40% range. That's just me though.

              I don't believe that shiney/silky looks was achieved so much with D&B as it was with curves. Sample brightness points on the image to get the right point on the curve and adjust accordingly.

                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...

                D&B is the s*it.

                Hello!
                After working on this image for about 8-10 h I'm sick and tired of it. Dodging and burning those goose bumps was a real pain in the ass. Took forever, but I'm quite pleased with the result. I usually get blind when working this long on an image, so forgive me if I missed some things! ...

                First D&B!
                by Findedeux
                I tried my first D&B recently. While the picture isn't a great one for the task, I wanted to try it with one of my own images as opposed to a sample. I think I may have taken away too much dimension but at least hope it looks better than before.

                Would love any constructive criticism....

                Minimum Size for D&B?
                by Findedeux
                I am just learning about Dodge & Burn and noticed that the pixel-level D&B requires very fine picture detail. I have some old photos that I'd like to try D&B on but they are only 8MP resolution.

                Is this too low a resolution to D&B on?

                I did this on softlight(50% gray), no blurs at any level.
                Please let me know what you think!
