U don't need to be an expert to learn dodge n burn...More importantly...you must be able see from the picture where u need to burn in the details, dodge out certain areas...denniskee said:ha ha ha, not sure where to burn and where to dodge lay. still newbie in ps.:sweat:
???knoxknocks said:hey dennis, agree with the others about contrast and time of day.
next time we meet at BP, can show you a bit of dodge and burn. same as traditional darkroom lah :bsmilie:
actually, i think by simply adjusting the levels a bit, you're probably there
both can be used to achieve contrast adjustment - the two methods just offer different levels of control. Dodging highlights and burning shadows is to add contrast to different parts of a pic selectively. Adjusting levels can be used to balance/fix highlights, shadows and midtone values in a pic to add contrast - but unless you go through the effort of masking (or selecting areas that you want/don't want) - it does this to the entire image.denniskee said:???
you mean dodging and burning same as levels??
