I've been an admirer of this sort of look for some time now and have always thought it's due to the famed 3d effect produced by a Leica or Hassie lens. Though in recent times as I explore more portrait photographer's work I've begun to see this sort of output by various camera models(and therefore presumably different lenses) so I've finally come to the conclusion that this must be some special sort of processing. I'm simply amazed by the texture of the images, it's gorgeous, but I have no idea how to achieve it.
Most recently, photo.net's photograph of the week also displayed this same processing. It's most certainly not the camera/lens as well because she uses a Panasonic FZ-30. I have never known the Panasonic FZ series to produce such output even though it uses a "Leica" lens, and a good deal of these shots were made outdoors as well and doesn't appear to be modified lighting.
The photographer's work is here
I haven't seen this sort of processing being posted here on CS before, but I was wondering if anyone can shed light for me on how this is done. The crispness of the images is just gorgeous. I'd be most grateful
