Sweet Dodging & Burning for Skin Tutorial

I’ve been looking for a good video tutorial for skin dodging and burning and came across this one by Jason Southern.

I know a lot of beginning retouchers are confused as to how dodging and burning can be used to edit the skin, and this tutorial will show you some of what you can do when you master the art of D&B. What’s great about this tutorial especially is that it’s simple and easy to understand.

This photoshop dodge and burn tutorial mainly to show you how to remove a blemish using dodging and burning.

Be sure to check out Jason’s work on 500px.

Here’s another tutorial on dodging & burning by Elena Jasic. This one shows some different ways to use dodge & burn to enhance your model’s skin (rather than just remove blemishes). You’ll see how to enhance the highlights and shadows of your portrait to really make your subject pop (via Coddington).
