I see photos like this sometimes that look, almost, like the subject is glowing or is suffused with light. (I don't know how else to describe it.) I seem unable to get this effect without just making my picture look overexposed. Is it simply a matter of lifting highlights (like someone suggested on a thread about a different effect)?
If I lift the black point or decrease contrast, that seems to make the photo look washed out. But this looks quite vivid – which I like – just quite soft at the same time. Is it shadow-related? Or perhaps I'm perceiving color adjustments as lighting adjustments and the key is related to saturation... ?
Lightroom answers requested unless there's a PS action or something you would suggest.
