Yup, you can achieve this effect in photography with the lighting. But since you want to know how to do this in Photoshop, I guess you can just start to brush on side black & once you start getting closer towards your subject, use a soft brush.

i believe this belongs in graphics because im actually trying to blend an image already taken into a black background to look something like that.. so im actually photo editing.

It'd be 02394802934234x easier to enhance this effect (AND make it look realistic) if you start off by actually trying to get this with your camera.
Basically, when you take the picture, make sure you have a light source close to you / specifically on one side of your face or somethingg? I think. Well, ummm I just accidently had the light closer and more near one side of my face than the other, and the rest of my room was dark. So when I took the picture, the background was still visible, but it was darker than it would've been if I actually had my lights on.
Then in Photoshop, I used a large soft brush in black and brushed the edge of it. If I did too much of the bg, it looked EXTREMELY fake and whatnot lol. Then I edited brightness/contrast (in a new adjustment layer) and made it darker/more contrasty and then on the new layer, erased some parts of it to make my face more brighter/visible so my face vs. the light was a huge contrast. Then I did select colouring, and under "black" in the dropdown menu, I raised the black bar all the way up so the darkness was very.. black? lmfao. And then I did some other minor selective colourings and erased parts that I didn't like on it.
YEPPPP.. That's basically what I did. o_______o;;;;;; Lolll.
