Hey Folks,

It’s Wednesday which means a new episode of my FREE Photography, Photoshop and Lightroom Video Podcast Show is Online!

In this Episode (#8) we’re taking a look at one of my favourite areas of retouching…Dodging and Burning.

I kick off by showing you first of all how I don’t do it which might sound kind of weird but I think this is useful as it then reinforces the understanding of why you might choose one method over another. To really get to grips with Photoshop and your workflow I think it’s just as important to understand why you wouldn’t do something as well as why you would.

After that I then show you how I use the dodge and burn tools non destructively and in a way that gives you so much flexibility and control PLUS I finish off with a super fast technique using Channels.

Hope you like it.

As always if you have any questions or comments please feel free to email at or leave a comment below.

In the mean time have a great Wednesday and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow.

    Great content as usual Glyn. I really like the last section where you use the channels and create ‘screen’ and ‘multiply’ layers. It looks like a very quick way of working to create a dodge and burn effect to add contour.

    I remember hearing about something called a luminosity mask that people use in landscape images, and this sound a similar process, but I have never tried it – till now. I’m going to go off and try it straight away.
