    Newb here ...

    I do my post work with PhotoShop CS3, and would love to start giving some of my portraits a more glamour feel to it. I youtube a few tutorials, but would like to get everyone's feedback here if possible.

    What's the best and possibly quickest way to get this effect?

    Thank You

    In the camera when you make the image.

    Honestly, hair and makeup prior to the shots. And quality, well-controlled lighting. That'll get you 99% of the way without having to touch PS.

    Do you have any examples (links only, please) of the types of shots you're trying to emulate?

    Well not neccesairly the model (hair and makeup) but post editing ... maybe softening the skin, etc. Some tutorials say to play with the glow ... this is what i am talking bout .. mainly skin and glow ... or if glow is not what i should be doing than what else?

    Hang out at Model Mayhem. There are pros there who do high-end glamour work. Believe me, it is not done mostly in the camera.

    Bumping a thread is very poor forum etiquette, IMO.

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, Portrait Professional Software. I am still rather new in comparison to the pro population on here (shooting solo for three years), but I was given this tip by a great photo friend. Inexpensive and does the job quickly. I use it to smooth baby skin, pop eye color and reduce unsightly blemishes without my subjects looking too processed. Check out their samples on their site ... You will be amazed!!!!

    Hey KMH, thanks for your opinion. I apologize if it has come off a bit poor, but maybe used the "bump" incorrectly. I just meant to thank the comment previous to my bump ....

    Don't listen to anyone who tells you that you need to practice, trial and error, practice, study, practice, experience, practice even more, etc.. There is a secret that all the professionals know, which let them get as good as they are without having to actually put in their time learning.

    Are you ready? The secret is... oh crap, they are coming for me! help! Ahhhhhhhh!!!
