Otiose - dodge and burn by May-Machin Otiose - dodge and burn by May-Machin
A simple tutorial how I like to use dodging and burning on my images in photoshop. It's basic, and if useful, I'd like to make more. So let me know what you think.

Use this to enhance lighting, colors, contrast, brighten or darken eyes, or anything. Experiment.

It just goes to show you there are a million ways to do the same thing in PS. I will have to try this method for sure. I've always done the new layer (have to do it through CTRL-SHIFT-N or Command-SHIFT-N for us Macs ) and select the layer to Overlay and check the "fill with neutral color (%50 grey )". Then paint with black or white as usual, but I wonder if the method in the tutorial creates a better result. Great addition of using colors too that is helpful. Thanks again for sharing.
