  • We will be using the dodge and burn tool to reshape the light impact on the face of the model and lastly,

To follow this tutorial step by step, I have attached a download link to the file I used. Kindly download the file and if you have your own high-quality picture, you can still follow along.

For the scope of this tutorial, I will like to emphasize a few points you should keep in mind

  • Skin texture: Skin texture is really key and if care is not taken you will lose the skin texture during frequency separation so this is my rule of thumb. Moderation is golden. Don’t go over the limit and make it simple.
  • If you want to be better at it, get your hands dirty. The more images you try to retouch, the better you will become. Remember practice makes perfect.
  • Train your eyes to see colours, shapes, tones, symmetry, depths and more. If you can see it you can create it.
