How To: Dodge and burn in Lightroom 2

Dodge and burn in Lightroom 2

In this tutorial, we learn how to dodge and burn in Lightroom 2. First, open up your image in Lightroom 2 and use the brushes to change the saturation and the colors in the image. You can also use the graduated filter which you can use to apply effects across the image itself. Next, you can add a tint onto the picture and apply a second filter to make the top of the image darker, then make the middle of it brighter. Change the exposure and saturation to make the picture look more realistic. Use your adjustment brush to make the picture brighter, then after you're done with this, save it and enjoy!
