Use a computer and a software program called Photoshop.

In all honesty, I dont think Chuck was being particularly rude. From what I see, there isnt notably much editing.

Looking at your own portfolio, I can see that you might be looking at these photos and thinking "How do I make the skin look so good and get those amazing reflections in the skin".

There are two things:

1) Hire a good model - which it looks like you already have done.
2) Setup up good lighting - learn how to use softboxes, reflectors and when to use the more harsh direct light.

I suspect much of what you see as editing is just good lighting. There may be a little skin retouching simply using the blemish tool or gentle blurring.

Before you say 'rude', do you know what specifics op was talking about? No, you don't and you are clueless on what editing op was referring to, right?

Doable entirely without post work.   Also doable in Lightroom smile

How would you do that without post work?

Is a matter of playing with tones in camera Raw/lightroom/capture one...
