Film Noir Look
And the original after some adjustments in lightroom:
Normally I never use plugins in photoshop, but for this photo I used Nik Color Efex. I used it a couple different times, first was to smooth the skin. Second, to add a tonal contrast only to the background. And Lastly to add a glamour glow to the model. At the same time I did some light painting(50% gray soft light layer with mask) to brighten areas like the eyes. And for the black and white I used the film negative filter. Gotta say, I'm really happy with how it came out!
