Advanced Photoshop Tutorial #8 – Professional Dodge & Burn Technique

Advanced Photoshop Tutorial #8 – Professional Dodge & Burn Technique

Hi Everyone, Kevin here.

Today I’m going to show you guys a non destructivedodge and burn technique.

You start with making a new layer.

Then pick a new foreground color.

and here you type in 80 80 80 which is midgrey.

Fill your layer with that grey color and setthe blending mode to overlay.

If you’re planning to use this method more often I suggest to make an action of that mid grey on overlay.

Now instead of picking the dodge & burn tool I use the brush tool with black and white.

I use the brush on opacity 7 so it’s nottoo aggressive.

I also turn on transfer in the brush settings over here, it gives you more control if you work with a wacom tablet.

You can now lighten or darken areas you want to threat.

Like this.

If you’re finished you may want to deletethe areas you don’t use to make your file less heavy.

It can really add up if you have multipleof these layers in your file.

And thats it! Coming soon I’m planning to share more colorgrading and masking tutorials.

Thanks for watching, see your guys later.
