Photoshop Painting with Light, or Dodge & Burn Technique #5

November 15, 2013  •  2 Comments

In this video I demonstrate how you can use Blend Modes like "Color Dodge" and "Color Burn" to add some extra punch to your images by creating selective local contrast. Unlike other Dodge & Burn techniques I've described before, the goal here is not neccessarily to lighten dark areas or darken highlights. I actually use this technqiue to "paint in" selective light and shadow to add more contrast and drama to an image.

This technique is quite easy and can be used with most versions of Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. The video assumes you already have basic Photoshop skills like how to duplicate a layer, use a brush, etc. I would be interested to hear back if you found this tip useful and how it helped you process your images.
