How would you like to have ultimate control of your dodging and (D&B) in Adobe Photoshop (PS)? I have to confess, lately I've been doing a lot of D&B using the Adjustment Brush in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (LR). You can go either way, but last night I was asked about D&B in PS. I've written about the technique a few times before, but I guess it's time to revisit it. A buddy of mine has the "Photographer's Bundle" from Adobe. She pays her $9.99 (in the US) each month and doesn't use LR at all. She says she looked at it and thought it looked complex. Complex? Compared to PS it's simplicity itself. Another friend in the conversation said he now uses LR for 90 - 95% of his work. I agree, I probably use LR 100% of the time that I'm not doing composites or things that require Layers. The only reason to go to PS is to do things that absolutely can't be done (or are easier to do in PS) in LR. To find out how to use Curves Adjustment Layers in PS to do your D&B, hit the "Read More".
