The Dodge and Burn tools can be so helpful when editing your images.  Don’t overlook them by any means.

This is an image I worked on today.  I took this over a year ago in New Mexico. It was originally in color but I converted it to black and white and then applied what I know using the Dodge and Burn tools in Photoshop Elements.  This can be done in Lightroom as well.

This image is after converting to black and white.  I have done nothing else to it.


Now this after using the Dodge and Burn tools in Elements…  Nothing dramatic but just enough of a difference to bring him more out of the image.
