Fast Eddie Black and White method is great

A great technique for portraits, especially images that were shot well with lighting, is the place a hue/sat adjustment layer a the top most layer, set to -100...completely desaturation the image in appearance only. Then add a curve adjustment layer underneath that hue/sat adjustment, and apply a very steep "S" curve to the R & B channels.

Your favorite retoucher's favorite retoucher.

For a little more flexibility I used a BW adjustment layer instead of Hue/Sat adjustment layer with Sat = -100, but an excellent concept and implementation regardless. Great results and suggestion. Thanks.
