Photoshop Tips: Dodging and Burning

This video focuses on a Photoshop technique that many people seem interested in and that I’m often asked to talk about – pixel level dodge and burn.

This popular technique is used by many professionals. Dodging and burning preserves all the original texture, because we are not moving pixels around, we are only slightly lightening and darkening, and by doing this we create a smooth gradient and even tones.
