weirdvis You have the perfect touch. I'm very impressed with the way you have applied dodge and burn to these images. A step by step guide to how you achieved these effects - including before and after shots to demonstrate the subtle changes - would be useful. Any chance of that?

nixtaytay Great set Marcel, nice lesson too! Maybe you could show us the original pics, so that we could compare the before and after effects of dodge and burn, this way it would be much easier for the viewers to see your point of view in post processing these images.....PS: baka pwede ka na rin mainvite na magtalk sa camera club namin on this lesson! hehehe small talk lang naman =)

Jason Cool use of Dodge and burn, but wondering why you are doing that in many of these when lightness adjustments in Lab mode would serve the same purpose with less color destructive effects?

Marcel Yup. I agree. The dodge and burn tool is a bit destructive. And impossible to backtrack. I usually just use several levels layer with masking. No, I really haven't tried Lab mode, will experiment on this one of these days.

jo Nice ah!
Though I haven't tried this yet, I'm really amazed by the outcome (especially with what you did the first portrait). Though I have to say that some are a bit too dark for me. hehe

Kevin First, it takes more than Photoshop to achieve your results - Creative. Very intriguing work! A less destructive way to use the burn and dodge tools is to create a new layer from the top menu. In the option window that appears, change the mode to "Overlay" and check the box next to "Fill with Overlay-neutral color (50% gray). Choose an exposure of 25% and burn and dodge away! If you are unhappy with the results, just trash the layer and begin again. Thanks for the motivation!
