Do your images look flat? It is very challenging to create a sense of our 3-dimensional world with a 2-dimensional photograph. The dramatic light you saw may not come through in RAW files and complex scenes can overwhelm and confuse the viewer. All of these can be addressed with dodging and burning.

During this program, Greg will demonstrate Luminosity masking and artistic principles to guide dodging & burning. He will also cover how to guide the viewer’s eye, make images look 3-dimensional, add sunlight, add backlight/sidelight, dodging & burning with luminosity masks, dodging & burning with RAW multi-processing, and how to troubleshoot common issues.
