There’s More Than One Way to Skin a Meerkat

Today’s VMMT shows a different way to dodge & burn. Some people prefer this method because it uses a separate layer specifically for dodging and burning. Using this technique, you can go back and “tweak” the changes at a later date. That’s a good fallback position if you’re not sure you like what you did the first time.

A disadvantage of this technique is that it’s a bit more involved and convoluted. Bottom line, it’s six of one, a dozen of the other (yeah, I know it’s “half dozen” but have you noticed the number of people who say it wrong?)
