Nondestructive dodging and burning: Deke's Techniques

Welcome back to Deke’s Techniques! Today, Deke returns to the panoramic photography he pieced together of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, and shows you how to add a sense of drama with the Dodge and Burn tools and a saturation adjustment in Photoshop. When we say drama, we’re talking incredible color, shadows, and highlights. And he does all of it nondestructively, by isolating the dodging and burning on a separate layer.

Watch today’s free video to get started dodging and burning better detail into your own images. Come back next week to learn how to replace the background behind an object with a cast shadow—not just inside Photoshop, but also in programs like PowerPoint and Keynote, which don’t normally support Photoshop’s brand of transparency.
