What are your thoughts on setting the curves layers to 'luminosity' to avoid the colour shifts that take place? Reply Ryan Cee says: December 4, 2017 at 9:48 am Love it! It also does sound a little like Melisandre is giving a photoshop lesson. Reply Alan Success says: December 5, 2017 at 9:55 pm You are such a good instructor.I mean the BEST. Reply Peter De Smidt says: December 8, 2017 at 3:41 am Excellent tutorial! Wouldn't changing the blending mode of your dodge and burn layers to "luminosity" get rid of the color shifts? Reply LT Designs says: December 11, 2017 at 5:52 am Great tutorial! Never tried the curves technique before, but I will definitely try it out now. It looks so much easier and controlled as well. I'm looking forward for the second part! Thank you for sharing, not many people do! 😉 Kind regards, Lia. Reply Andreas Petker says: December 26, 2017 at 9:14 pm Wow! Your series on retouching is very helpful. I've created an action for me to save time and also to practice. Is there any news/update on the GLOBAL D&B video you mention on the end? Reply Andi Short says: December 31, 2017 at 12:28 pm Great video….far more better process then the frequency seperation way…thank you so much!! Reply Calvin Smith says: January 8, 2018 at 2:46 pm very cool tut, you explain so clearly even a numb nut like me can follow Reply Szabolcs Matefy says: January 9, 2018 at 7:50 am Using Luminosity instead of Normal blending mode wouldn't solve color shift? Reply sermirandavideo says: January 9, 2018 at 12:00 pm Great work Zoë!! Reply Robert Silver Photography says: January 16, 2018 at 1:00 am Fantastic video and even better tip. Thanks this truly helped me improve me editing! Reply Leandro Ilha Martins says: January 16, 2018 at 1:01 pm Zoë have you ever tried using a solid color adjustment as a help layer instead of hue/saturation ? Set the color to black, change blend mode to color. Pratik Naik uses this method to help seeing the tonal differences. This technique prevents color shifting. Reply Paul Tortora says: January 16, 2018 at 3:46 pm Wonderful retouching and great explanation Reply Darren Turner says: January 18, 2018 at 12:30 am Great technique, thank you Zoe. 👍🏻 Reply Jorgemakeup says: January 19, 2018 at 9:26 am This is an incredible tutorial!

Reply Thomas says: February 11, 2018 at 8:47 pm Thank you! Very helpful! 👍 Reply Omer Faraj says: February 11, 2018 at 9:13 pm THANK YOU !!! Reply Frank Withers Photography says: February 16, 2018 at 10:33 pm Great video. Nice to see that quite simply, there's no shortcut to great results. One question- instead of clipping the hue/saturation to your curves layer to correct color-shift in your dodging, can you just have the curves layers on luminosity blending mode? This is what I typically do, and am curious to know if there is a reason to avoid this specifically. Thank you Reply Steven Willis says: February 18, 2018 at 6:34 pm Awesome Reply Fran Roman says: February 19, 2018 at 10:34 am Hello ZoË! thank you so much for this very helpful video! you teach so nice!i would love to watch color grading of your photos!

Reply Peter Klostos says: March 24, 2018 at 3:57 am Thanks for sharing Zoe, I've purchased tutorials recently that overly complicate this immensely! x Reply Manny Manuel says: March 24, 2018 at 4:53 pm where can I find the global D&B video mentioned? thanks Reply cik bibc says: March 26, 2018 at 5:06 am thanks zoeeeee Reply Clemens Friese says: March 30, 2018 at 2:34 pm Thank you for this great video! Looking forward to see more. maybe about the Liquify tool?I wanted to know if you use the frequency seperation at all, since a lot of other people do it. (But I learned it is the cheaper way of doing it). And if you use it, when to apply this technice? Reply Dan Hostettler says: April 7, 2018 at 12:54 pm Thank you so much for your tut series Zoë! I watched quite a few from the usual suspects but yours are the best re "simple" approach<>effectivnes<>high quality work. May I ask if you have any news on the "GLOBAL D&B Video"? Thank you! Reply Maru De Mattia says: April 9, 2018 at 3:55 am thank you zoe! i'm learning a lot from you! <3 Reply Fabian Schumacher says: April 13, 2018 at 2:21 pm Wouldn't it be another solution set the blending mode of the curve adjustment layer to luminosity? That way, the adjustment layers only affect the brightness, not the color and you'd avoid those color shifts without the need of an additional adjustment layer for saturation. Reply Camila Mourão Turola says: April 19, 2018 at 12:52 am OMG amazing. I can watch forever. Thanks! Reply NightWalker says: May 1, 2018 at 3:52 pm Zoë where is the video about color correction?? Pleaseee Reply LFTER says: May 1, 2018 at 3:57 pm are the highlights ont the nose and cheek bone made with the flash or is it postprod ? Reply Tia DeGiobbi says: May 7, 2018 at 1:37 am So helpful!

Cures and set it to screen and clik alt I ? when making a doge and Burn layers? and is it dodging ligh and brun is dark.. u doing it the other way aaround? Reply Manny Manuel says: June 8, 2018 at 8:44 pm Zoe, this guy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jnFdrtS2YQ uses solid color layer instead of the hue that you use. Which is a better way of doing D&B? you use an extra step to remove the color shift but wondering if his or yours is the better way. Reply Francesco Zancan says: June 17, 2018 at 9:28 pm Very interesting tutorial, thanks for sharing 🙂 Reply CanisLatrans says: June 19, 2018 at 9:13 pm Hi Zoe! When next global dodging nad burning tutorial? Can wait! Thank you. Reply Diego Fernández says: June 25, 2018 at 4:12 am By far, one of the most useful and best explained tutorials. I greatly appreciate your time to share your knowledge. Thank you very much, greetings from Argentina. Reply Mike Boldt says: June 27, 2018 at 10:09 am Cannot wait for more videos! I am not at all familiar with retouching skin and this has given me an amazing place to start. Really enjoying it and wanting to shoot more stuff! Thank you so much for posting these! You do an excellent job at explaining each step. Reply Ekaterina Soubbotina says: July 4, 2018 at 1:52 am The best skin retouching tutorial I've ever seen!! Thank you, Zoe!! Reply Fabian Schuster says: July 21, 2018 at 10:53 pm You can also Set the curves layer on Luminosity, then you have not so color shifts. Or you can fix it, in the D&B Frequency Technik. Great Video Reply Spinlayer says: August 3, 2018 at 11:26 pm (Sorry for my English) I've found this video accidentally.. I've learned more in this 15 minutes video than in a lot of others "pro's" videos that try to explain the same but in a too much complex way! I suscribed instantly!!! (Edited)… So sad. There is no new videos since 8 months ago. I think this is an abandoned channel :(. Did anyone knows where to buy tutorials or something of this photographer? Reply Kessler Lite says: August 8, 2018 at 8:13 pm Hi. I haven't seen your channel before but I wish I did. You have a pleasant voice and nice way of explaining. Are still going to make the global d&b video? I wish you could keep making videos like these. I can learn a lot. Reply Nathan Zondlo says: August 9, 2018 at 6:11 am Your tutorials are so good and thorough! Where did you go, and are you ever coming back? Reply BGMAP says: September 2, 2018 at 3:55 pm This video finally cleared up the micro dodge and burn technique using pen pressure that I have been trying to figure out. Thank you! Reply Alicia Wonderland says: September 3, 2018 at 1:54 pm Zoe, just wanted to say thank you for sharing your knowledge and posting the tutorials ! Reply Devika Bajaj says: September 13, 2018 at 2:17 pm Everything is okay.. But you should zoom it. The full screen is really annoying. We can't see the flow n opacity. Try to show us as zoom Reply Анна Калитина says: September 14, 2018 at 2:25 am Thank u for this video! It's so useful and so short-spoken at the same time. I've been looking for it for a long time.

I was looking for your techniques all over youtube! Thanks for sharing your knowledge! Reply orenji says: October 8, 2018 at 1:37 pm Great tutorial and so informative! Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge. Reply Chris Childress says: October 11, 2018 at 12:58 am Was waiting on the new video but it never came? 🙁 Reply Hooman Mesri says: October 23, 2018 at 12:33 pm With all respect, why didn't you change blend mode to Luminosity for your curve adjustments to only effect the darkness and brightness without changing the color? Reply Ruslan Bykov says: October 23, 2018 at 7:38 pm Great tutorial video! But there's one little trick could be used: instead of adding Hue-Saturation adjustment layers clipped to Curves, you can just change the blend mode of Curves from Normal to Luminosity. Boom – no color shifts! Reply R.J.W. says: October 27, 2018 at 3:39 pm I love your videos and tutorials, it's sad to see you have stopped making YouTube videos. Do you have a SkillShare course or something similar that I can tune in? Reply InkCherry says: November 22, 2018 at 12:24 am Great video Reply Nicolas Maton says: November 25, 2018 at 8:36 am Thank you for this clear and detailed howto.. It helps a lot. Reply Nathan Pillow says: November 27, 2018 at 1:18 pm Best video I’ve seen explaining Local Dodge and Burning, and a stunning image. Most I’ve found I can’t even see the difference, but here I can. Reply Kashif Rashid says: December 6, 2018 at 8:57 am Brilliant video. Extremely useful. I would love to see the dodge and burn process entirely rather than it being fast forwarded. I feel most videos always forward that part but I feel that whenever i dodge and burn, my images turn out blotchy and i know im doing something wrong. A non fastforwarded video would be nice to clear out what i am doing wrong Reply rayan souaidi says: December 8, 2018 at 9:39 am This complete tutorial helped me a lot and I learned so much from you! Everything was clear as always. Thank you 🙏 Reply Robert Lysakowski says: December 23, 2018 at 8:09 pm Very informative one, I will go through it few times to fully understand it. I appreciate the way you explain things, it's very clear and easy to follow.You seem to use the tablet for the retouch process, I am just testing one myself (Wacom Intuos Pro) and I curious of your experience and workflow.
