Why We Dodge And Burn
I find many photographers will dodge and burn simply because they were told to, without knowing the purpose and intention behind it…
So for this lesson, we’ll be discussing the “big picture” idea behind dodging and burning – what is the purpose, and what makes this time-tested workflow so extraordinary?
Dodging and burning relies on painting over the areas you want to affect with your brush tool, and the key to seamless results is knowing how to adjust the feather, flow, and density settings.
And like any tool, if you don’t know how to use it properly…it’s pretty useless.
