how is this look done...

Hi there - ive been wondering a lot on how this look is done - under the section "portrætter" www.sifmeinicke.dk say image 29 with the woman with the flower in the hand/mouth and for that sake some of the others images as well . i can see that she uses one light - maybe a 580 or a sb900 or so and a fast lens but the PP i cant figure out. I use Ps and lightroom on good skilled level. Thanks in advance for any help - regards anna. How do i link ?????

I'm not sure he used a flash there. Looks pretty ambient to me. And the PP is nothing that can't be done just during conversion.

Duplicate layer, desaturate the duplicate (command shift U), set it to soft light. If darks go too dark, create a curve and clip it to the soft light layer and adjust to taste. Another way to prevent the darks to go black, is to use shadows and highlights on the desaturated duplicate.

The important thing is that more or less, this is how a luminosity contrast increase looks like.
