Using Dodge & Burn with overlay layers, but along lines of contours on a subject to create highly stylized images, as well as to help really enhance normal images as well! This tutorial uses a great pinup model shot to show off the technique to non-destructively get this effect and to leave a lot of control over the results.

Using principles of Dodge & Burn with Overlay layers to give incredible control to highlighting and shaping in your images. A pinup example is used to really allow for an exaggerated effect to demonstrate the capabilities of this technique.

Useful for all sorts of photos and images where a little extra control is wanted to help an image stand out.
