Eisenhower Found on an Undeveloped Roll of Film Photographer Levi Bettwieser has been doing some incredible work as the founder and film technician behind The Rescued Film Project.

The Fastest Way to Dodge and Burn Your Photos

The Fastest Way to Dodge and Burn Your Photos In the days of film photography, dodging and burning was often a time-consuming task. And even in these digital days, dodging and burning can take up a lot of time. But lucky for us, Photoshop master Aaron Nace has figured out the simplest, fastest way to achieve the dodge and burn effect: Dodging and burning is a correction tool used to over-expose shadow areas to bring out detail and under-expose highlights to reduce flare-out, yet it can also be used to add depth and shape to the photo and bring out definition. Nace’s technique—one of the easiest I’ve seen so...
