It seems to me at the moment that all you need to do is get a pretty girl and a copy of Portrait Professional or some other skin smoothing software to photoshop the reality out of her skin & make it glow like a porn star.
Sorry, unhelpful I know, just a bit fed up of seeing the same shots in all the magazines showcasing models who's faces & skin have been photoshopped within an inch of their lives.
I'd recommend a portraiture course, you could also join one of the amateur/pro model websites where you can get models to pose for you in return for copies of the shots for their portfolios, also try Flickr & going on one of the group model shoots they run.
You can also practice on anyone willing to stand still for you while you try different settings, lighting & techniques. That's how I got practise, with 3 lovely daughters, however, their patience & willingness deteriorates pretty rapidly & sadly two of them refuse to pose now & the third will only do it for cash or 10 minutes.
