A short lesson on Dodge & Burn

Here is a short, yet extremely useful lesson, on Dodging and Burning.  I have only recently discovered the power of Dodging and Burning.  Essentially, Dodge and Burn are used to lighten or darken areas of the image – Dodge to lighten and Burn to darken.  I have found an excellent video tutorial online by A.J. Wood.  So far I have found this to have the best effect on my images.

As I use this technique now pretty much all the time I have created an action to speed up my editing.

Thanks for reading.
