Magazine/Model type photos
I was wondering... Photos that have that pop and glow to them like in magazine photos or modeling photos. Are they shot like that or is there some post processing that gets it that way? Is its post processing, can someone give me their typical workflow to get a dull photo to be so awesome? Thanks. Before and afters will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Magazine/Model type photos
No doubt there's plenty of makeup applied, and perfect lighting, and the very best cameras, etc. But yes, there's plenty done in Photoshop. (check out my folio)
I wish I could say there's a straightforward way to learn, but I don't think there is. You need to know plenty about Levels or Curves, and lots about masking, to begin with. Then it's just lots and LOTS of practice.
I agree with Wabbit - there's some good stuff on retouchpro.com. And some of the gurus on this site have been kind enough to share their skin secrets as well.
