How To Dodge & Burn Effectively in Photoshop

10/10/2016 ISO 1200 Magazine 0 Comments

The traditional Dodge and Burn tools found in Photoshop require us to use destructive workflow, while over-saturating the colours in our image. There are many different ways to dodge and burn in Photoshop that offer cleaner results.

The techniques in this tutorial use a mixture of blend modes, the paint brush and masks. If we combine a white or black paint brush with a layer that has a blend mode set to Overlay or Soft Light, we can often dodge and burn very cleanly. Combing this with accurate masks, will give us a beautifully clean result. Don't worry if this sounds confusing, the video will explain all.
