How do photographers get that soft glowing look to their pictures? I will be doing some senior pics this summer so I have been looking at as many pics as I can and I see that alot. I am not even sure if "soft and glowing" are the correct words to describe but the pics definatley look better than they do in real life. Not meaning to sound bad but the pictures make them look much better. I would love to learn how to do that.
Probably a combination of good lighting and post-processing. Kimi had a homework assignment a month or two ago that shared one portrait photographer's secret. Have you looked back through the homework threads and checked the tutorial section of this forum? I think one or more skin softening tutorials have been posted.
