Next add a new layer filled with color #495cbf. Go to Layer > New Fill Layer > Solid Color. Set Mode "Soft Light" and Opacity: 30%. Specify color #495cbf and press OK. This layer, I added a bit of color to even out the color scheme. These layers are preparing colors and image for the correct application of the night effect

Step 10

Now we have to highlight the center of our image with color spot. Create a new layer with gradient fill (Layer > New Fill Layer > Gradient...), Set Mode "Soft Light" and Opacity: 50%. In window that appears click on gradient and make as in image below from color #ffffff to #0e1406 (to duplicate gradient slider hold Opt/Alt and move it). After you are done with a gradient, click Ok and in window "Gradient Fill" set Style: Radial, Angle: 55, 3 degrees, Scale: 150% and click OK.

At night, anything not be blue. Just a hint of color, therefore, for the balance, I added a new adjustment layer "Curves", but this time I worked on a Red channel (one point: Input: 134, Output: 123;) to add a little green color and on blue channel (3 points: Input: 56, Output: 45; Input: 136, Output: 120; Input: 205, Output: 196) make yellow tint on image.

Go to Layer > New Fill Layer > Solid Color. Set Mode "Overlay" and Opacity: 30%. Set color #28337a and press OK.

Step 11

Go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Brightness/Contrast... Set Brightness: 3, Contrast: 1. I added a bit of a glow, and the following layers will help me to darken the image and add basic tone.
20
Create a new layer with gradient fill (Layer > New Fill Layer > Gradient...) Set Mode "Soft Light" and Opacity: 50%. In Gradient Editor, make gradient #b0d7ff - #183099 - #0a1026. In "Gradient Fill" set Style: Radial, Angle: 67, 62 degrees, Scale: 150% and click OK.
19
Add an adjustment layer "Curves". On RGB channel, I use two points Input: 146, Output: 113 in center and move upper right point to Input: 255, Output: 224.
21
Last adjustment layer be again "Curves". Move upper right point to Input: 146, Output: 113. That is, we darkened the picture and you can proceed to selective correction. On the adjustment layer mask, using Brush Tool (B) (Size: 400px, Opacity: 50%, Hardness: 0%) remove effect from the central part of the image, as shown in the image below.

Step 12

Create a new layer by using Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + N or go to Layer > New > Layer. In the dialog box, specify the following settings for the layer: Mode: Overlay, set checkbox on "Fill with Overlay-neutral color (50% gray)". Use the Burn Tool (O) for create shadow and Dodge Tool (O) to create a light and shadow. Set the settings to each tool like shown in the image below. On this layer draw shadow along the edges of the image and on the back wall and light on stairs.
23
At this stage, everything is done and you can move on. That's about is you should get. All layers with adjustment layers, I will integrate into one group "night FX".

Step 13

And now we get down to the image of our magician. I had to use a few photos of a girl to create a correct posture. Start by adding the first model photo (File > Place (Place Embedded)) "stock___vampiria_by_mahafsoun-d7faxvr" (Model 1). Resize the image I did not, but there is one very important point and I do not advise you to use it often. To model seemed a little bit higher than I did reduce the width of the photo, and increased in height (if you use this only in very extreme cases, and so that all parts of the body remained normal).
