Hi. It's more "process" than "tutorial". But in this video you can look all process how I made this image (raw conversion, retouch, color work). It's fast retouch video, but if you want to see more slowly, I give a link below to slow version (with Russian comments).

Video tutorial

slow video

Also you can look more tutorials from my blog and my youtube channel. New videos with dodge&burn will appear every week. So subscribe and do not miss the interesting stuff smile

Why do you use the sRGB color space? Do you print these photos?

Nice display, could of kept the tunes going to the end but very well done.

Your using a 50% grey layer with the dodge tool set to midtones @ 7% with a light dest blue, could you explain your reasoning behind this method please.

edit: nevermind I figured it out... nice..

I make this photo only for rubric "dodge and burn" on youtube channel and for my portfolio (not for print in magazine). So doesn't matter which color space. Maybe photographer print this image for itself, but I don't think so.

There are several ways to do dodge&burn: 50% gray layer, 2 curves, 2 copy image on Multyply and Screen... 
I use 50% gray because it simpler and more familiar for me. It's the main reason smile

The RGB color space is way wider then the CMYK. though the translation does alter what you were going for in the in the original starting with RGB keeps a lot of the data that you can use for the web and computing device presentations.

Also Print is dead...good god save a tree man.

You can see all settings in slow video. Watch in hd quality - where you can see all the numbers.

I've seen this video before - probably when you first started this thread last year.

A lot of info can get lost in a speed retouching video. It's hard to see the settings and easy to miss a switch from one tool to another. Also, there's no "why". For example, why did you do so much of the D&B in a color photo on a desaturated image?

Step-by-step info would be useful in some places - especially where you added the gradated circle to the background behind the model near the end of the video. I could probably figure it out (or find it in another tutorial), but after watching the video I don't know exactly what the steps were.

To understand all this things you must have a good basic knowledges of PS. And then you not have so much questions.
D&B its work with volume, and doesn't matter how much I have color on image.
With your questions, I realized that the knowledge you not very big.
This tutorial made for people who already have a good skill in PS.

Not really. You need know only PS. If you know him, language doesn't matter. For example: My English not really good, only on basic level, but I watch many English tutorial on English and don't have any problem to understand what happened in video. Also I watching tutorial on German (I do not know them), and French (don't know too). And all information about retouching I understand. There is no language problem, there is the problem of lack of knowledge of PS.

I watched one in German today and my German is almost non-existent and I actually got mad at the video because of the steps which I thought made the photo look bad. The German master was showing how to do make the sky more blue only he ruined the photo, it looked awful. What was interesting was to look at the tabs in Deutsche and it was as if Martians had written the thing. I would essentially agree that if it is clear enough visually you can follow it, except that tabs in cyrillic would make most English speakers have a rough time. I think also the idea that you're advanced in photoshop so you can just follow it restricts the tutorial to people who can recognize the steps. I recall that one guy who has used photoshop for over a decade never used the gradient maps and thanked Scott Kelby for pointing to them in a recent video. Photoshop is a big program and I am just starting to practice dodging and burning and as usual it takes me a while to figure things out. I'll look at this as it might open my eyes to a better way.
