Welcome back.…In this movie we're going to work on the wrinkles.…So let's create a New Layer and let's do that by way of a shortcut, Shift+Command+N on a Mac,…Shift+Ctrl+N on a PC and we'll name this layer burn and dodge.…Next take the Blend mode to good old Soft Light and then select Fill with Soft-Light-neutral-color (50% Gray).…Press O on the keyboard that will select the Dodge tool, let's zoom in.…we're going to work on the shadows, a pretty low exposure, I take this down, something right below 20% there.…
Now, I have a nice and small brush here.…Brush, it's about the size of the wrinkles and I'm going to start working out these wrinkles.…Now, one of the things that I'm going to keep in mind as I'm working on these wrinkles is that I don't need…to remove the wrinkles; rather I want to just reduce them.…So I'm going to go across the image anywhere, where I see a little bit darker tone,…keep in mind I'm working on the darkest tones.…Work on the nostril there as well.…And work on these wrinkles, and I slowly want to work them out little by little.…
