This is the first video in a series by Phil Thornton that will take a look at the basic concepts of post processing an image of a couple. There are several ways to dodge and burn but the concept is the same. With proper dodging and burning you can move the viewers eye through the photo and add depth to an image. These same techniques can be applied to any application you might use for dodging and burning.
