Best way to remove the harsh shadows


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to use the dodge/burn technique with the soft light. My question though is it seems like it is changing the color of the image to a horrible orange. Maybe I'm just not finishing the whole technique or doing it wrong. This is the SOOR image.  The stupid flash did not fire and I have these harsh horrible shadows on this otherwise ok photo of the bride and her sisters. Help.

Have you seen this tutorial yet?  http://www.damiensymonds.net/2010/03/softening-hard-shadows-method-1.html

And if you're going to try the soft light D&B method, you'll really need the color fix step of the "handyman" method (though I don't know if Damien would recommend this approach at all with such harsh shadows): http://www.damiensymonds.net/2015/04/the-handyman-method.html
