Hahaha ...LOL First, start with a beautiful model with great skin tone.

The image of Awilda on the cranberry satin sheets was shot with my D100 at Cloudy-3 WB. In Photoshop I added a duplicate layer and applied the Diffused Glow to that layer, then did a Levels adjustment to raise the yellow level, then adjusted the opacity of that duplicate "glow" layer to 55%. To finish off the image I made a duplicate of the glow layer and applied a slight Gaussian Blur to that layer and set it at 55% to soften the overall look. I used the eraser to remove the blur from her eyes, mouth and necklace.

So now that you know exactly how to do it ... let's see what you come up with.
