How to contour dodge and burn in photoshop.
Dodge and Burn means lighten or darken particular areas of the image.
First duplicate portrait background twice.
Change blending of background copy to screen.
This step brightens the overall image, but we need the effect applied to darker areas.
So add layer mask and apply image set with invert option.
Now select background copy 2 and desaturate.
Go to filter – apply high pass filter.
Play around with radius to your preference.
In my case i choose 48 pixels.
Now we need to soften the layer to get dodge and burn look.
Go to filter and select gaussian blur filter.
Adjust radius to your preference, in my case it is 27 pixels.
Change blending mode to linear light.
Add layer mask to the group.
Add apply image command to make the effect blend well with the image.
Now take black brush and paint on unwanted areas to hide the effect.
we created the effect using smart filter, we can go back and adjust radius to your preference easily.
