My buddy Matt McGregor was kind enough to lend me his amazing image for this retouching tutorial. In this video we will be covering how to use non-destructive dodging and burning to retouch a candid portrait. This tutorial is for intermediate to advanced Photoshop users as we will be performing local adjustments with adjustment layers on a smart object raw file.

The result is a style similar to George Hurrell and other masters of the black and white portrait. All techniques are non-destructive and could be replicated in the darkroom if you had Ansel Adams like patience. As always if you have any questions or concerns comment on the story, send me an email, or ask me in person.

Enjoy!
