what do you suppose was used to create them then?

good natural light and white balance set correctly and that's about it?

Start with good data and the rest is relative easy. Start with bad data and you have a lot of work on your hands.

Doesn't mean you don't need to make a lot of fine adjustments in post - it's inevitable in professional celebrity shots - but the better the data, the easier it is.

Getting the data right is about getting the light right. After all, the data is just a digitised version of the light.
