About This Class

In this class I'm going to talk you about Dodge and Burn, a technique I use essentially all the times in my post productions.

It's quite an easy technique, yet, it can IMPROVE a lot your photos if used correctly!

It's also easy to mess it up, so it requires some practicing... 


As I said in the videos I will add more material to this class over time, like dodge and burn of colored photos for example.

Let me know if I could add something else in this class: something you didn't understand in the lessons, the explanation of something, etc.

Check out my website if you want to contact me directly:

I'll try to give my Skillshare Premium students support any time I can! :)
