Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding contour, part of Enhancing a Portrait of a Young Woman in Lightroom.
Softening the model's skin as I did in the…last movie has certainly evened out her skin tone.…But, it has also flattened out the contours of her face a bit.…I'd like to add in some more contour by burning and…dodging, in other words, darkening and lightening some parts of her face.…To do that, I'll use the Adjustment Brush tool.…I'll click on Adjustment Brush tool here in the toolbar under the histogram.…I'll set all of its sliders back to zero,…by holding the Option key, that's the Alt key on…the PC and clicking the Reset button here.…First thing I'm going to do is darken a few areas,…like the edges of her jawline and the edges of her nose.…
So I'll go to the exposure slider and I'm…going to drag that just slightly to the left.…Then I'll drag down.…And I'm going to set the brush settings.…I'm going to increase the feather slider all the…way to the right, and I'll un-check Auto mask.…Then I'll move into the image. I want to zoom in, so I'll hold…the spacebar and I'll click.…I hold this spacebar again and pan the image around.…
