Using the Dodge & Burn Tool
Okay, so I do dodge and burn a lot on my images here's, the radiant there and that was linear burn at thirty percent. So with dodge in bern, I don't want to do it right on the layer. I want to make a separate layer, you can't really do it as an adjustment layer. So what I do is hit shift have ten because I do it so often I have recorded it on a, uh on an action function key. So what it will do if it will make a blank layer and it names that dodge in bern for me, and it puts it in the blend mode of soft light, and then it tells me just start painting to burn and switch to dodge press x that just saves me time. I do it enough that I wanted as an auction. So what I'm doing is I'm painting with a big soft brush at on ly fifteen percent and it's black, so if I paint fifteen percent black, then it burns it unify xto white and I paint fifteen percent white. It dodges it so literally on this layer I was able to really refine and it's very soft and forgiving and it's completely non destructive.
So blank layer, soft light painting in black and white at fifteen percent is a great way to do dajun burns. And it should be in action. By the way, if you're gonna, you're gonna be using it a lot.
