Lighting techniques

Smart dodge & burn

I found this technique very helpfull in both of my final images. Creating a new layer filled with 50% grey ( #808080) and set to soft light mode. Using dodge tool for light areas and burn for darker. Very simple.

I  have implemented this technique twice for my ninja image  (moon and lamp).
