Making Dark and cold photo effect.
In this tutorial I'll show how to make your photos look more dramatic and creepy by Enhancing its colors and adding a Cold, Dark Effect to it.
step 1first, open your photo
Make sure your photo has natural colors, that aren't too saturated, or the effect won't work so well.
I chose this photo.
step 2Go to Layer > New adjustment layer > Black & white.
Set the layers Blend mode to Hard Light
If you wish Change the layers Opacity to make the effect seem weaker.
step 3Go to Layer > New adjustment layer > Brightness\Contrast
Lower the Brightness and add more contrast.
You can always go back to this layer and change its settings for a better result
I used this settings for example:
step 4Now, let's add some blue tone to the photo.
Create a new layer by pressing Ctrl + Shift + N.
Choose very dark blue color, Like this one #030520
Fill the layer with that color, Go to Edit > Fill
Choose these settings:
Set the layers Blend mode to Exclusion
Change the layers Opacity if you wish to weaker the effect.
step 5For Final adjustments we'll use some Levels.
Go to Layer > New adjustment layer > Levels Play with the levels until you'll get result you like. I used these settings on the RGB channel to darken the photo and add more contrast.
And these settings on the Blue Channel, to make the photos tone more blue and less yellow.
We're all done :)
You can always go back to each layer and change its setting to get a better result.
This is my final result:
