Shaping Light with Dodge and Burn (A Photoshop Tutorial)

Today, our friend Sean Tucker shares a little bit of the history of dodging and burning in photography, as well as 3 techniques in Adobe Photoshop (using curves, grey layers and blending modes) to shape the light and shadows in your images.

 I use both portraits and street photography images as examples so you can see the potential for these techniques in different genres.  - said Sean Tucker -
