The Good 'Ol Dodge & Burn

This is not my attempt at drawing a terrifying monster… this is actually how I retouch your photos! If you’ve ever wondered the secret to perfect skin, forget about all the special treatments and creams, and instead learn how to dodge and burn.  At first it sounds complicated (and to be honest, it kind of is), but basically the light areas are lightened in the photo and vice versa. By doing it on a small detailed level like what is shown above, I’m able to make skin tones look more clear and smooth. Pretty neat, right? If you’re still curious about this photoshop magic make sure to search Youtube for some skin retouching tutorials with dodge and burn! / portfolio / facebook /
