Video Quickies: Dodging and Burning
I created this quick video to walk you through dodging and burning in Adobe Photoshop.
I know what you are thinking! Yet another how-to video!
Well . . . yes! And here is my rationale.
I find that I like certain photographers, and others not so much. I try to learn from those whose style is similar to my own. I find that learning from those photographers help me to learn and apply that learning to my own photography.
So some will find this video helpful and is similar to their own style. Others will not, and that is OK. The point is that we are all learning from each other, and for that reason, I offer this quick video on dodging and burning.
I assume that you already have some familiarity with Photoshop. The point of this video is not to introduce those applications, but to show you how to use a particular feature to improve the impactmof your images.
Your mileage will vary, and of course, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask below! Thanks for watching!
About the Author
Back in 1982, my Air Force roommate was in desperate need of some cash, and he had a camera. And I was in the market for a camera as I had TDY (Temporary Duty) orders for Cyprus and was looking for a good camera to take with me. So over some beers and some negotiations with my roommate (and a few hundred dollars later), I found that I had become the owner of a brand spanking new Canon AE-1 camera with an assortment of lens, including a Canon 50mm, a 35mm lens, as well as a telephoto lens. Fast forward to today, and I am now an owner of a Canon 5D Mark II (looking to upgrade, but waiting to see if Sony comes out with a 'A9' before I upgrade) and a bunch of Canon glass and I am primarily a landscape photographer. Yea, that means that I get up before the sun rises and am out after the sun sets. Makes for interesting times! Thank you for joining me on this photographic journey and hope to hear from you!
