How to Dodge and Burn: Dark Skintones [Photoshop Skin Retouching Tutorial]



Hey guys!

I’ve had a lot of requests to do a tutorial on how to dodge and burn dark skintones, and a general photoshop skin retouching tutorial.
I’m pleased to say that I have finally gotten around to doing one! And I do have other skin retouching tutorials planned in future. โ˜บ

There are a few differences in dodging and burning for darker skintones, so I hope you guys find this helpful!
If you haven’t checked out my other tutorial on how to dodge and burn, you can view it here! https://youtu.be/lSeVmoEvL2E

    I loveeee all your videos on beauty. But please make a video on beauty cropping! Eg whatโ€™s your composition for beauty, like where should the eyes go, where should or shouldnโ€™t crop off! I wanna get into beauty photography and this is one biggest of the challenges I face

    Sometimes I'll need to fix the colour of the skin in one area, usually makeup related, kinda like this greyish patch near the mouth. Could you do a video about fixing skin colour in patches?

    I really appreciate this as someone with darker who skin who does their own photography. Iโ€™ve found some things difficult and itโ€™s hard when the tutorials only show fair skin
