Editing Info: opened original in pscs2 and duplicated layer with a screen three times and masking out part of the face~ then I flattened those layers and upped my saturation to 45 @ 50%~ then I duplicated the layer and blended in soft light at 40%. Then to do the b/w conversion I copied the red channel then back in the layers window I duplicated the flattened image and desaturated the top layer~ then I pasted the copied red channel on a new layer and changed the blending to soft light ~then reduced the opacity of that layer to 50%.


The original photo was so dark and yucky I won't even waste time posting it's info.
