Section 6: PAINTING WITH LIGHT
09:23

About this Lecture:

In this Lecture, I will show you the two different dodge & burn tools. We will cover, how they work and how we can use them in different techniques. I will also show you my dodge & burn technique, that I use in all my retouching workflows. Here is a more brief explanation about why we use grey layers in our dodge & burn process. This is an easy way to use selective painting to darken or lighten pixels and draw the viewers attention to certain parts of an image, or just adjust the image with selective dodge & burning. The beauty of it is, that you are painting on a 50% grey layer. You can not exceed 50% of the pixel value (dark or light) on the image. In other words you can only change the pixel value to up to 49% of its original value so you cant over do it.
