Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Dodging and burning, part of Photoshop: Creative Effects (2011).
Dodging and burning is easily one of my favorite creative effects. …I'm sure part of my fondness for this technique is a sense of nostalgia for the …time I spent working in the wet darkroom. I also like this technique because it …provides an opportunity to interact directly with the image in an artistic way. …Effectively, painting with light and dark in various areas of the image. …Photoshop does include Dodge and Burn tools and in fairness they've actually …been significantly improved in recent versions. …But I still prefer to use the Brush tool for this technique and in this lesson I'm …going to show you how I perform the task. I'll want to work on a separate layer so …I'm not altering my original pixel values and so I'm going to create a new pixel layer.…
However, I want that layer to have special property's. …So I'm going to hold the ALT key on Windows. …Or the Option key on Macintosh while clicking on the Create New Layer button. …The blank should have a paper icon at the bottom of the Layers panel. …
