It appears that your caps lock is still stuck on. Please turn it off.
Its not so much an effect. It is more the photographers work. They were obviously in a studio with a back drop and really good lighting. So you can't see anything but the subjects. Although in photoshop they probably bumped up the contrast a wee little bit. And they probably made sure the background was completely black.

Lighting has a lot to do with it, but if you want a simple way to get a similar effect, use the Unsharp Mask on Photoshop (or Smart Sharpen, both at Filter -> Sharpen). Adjust the Amount and Radius to your liking (but it's usually quite high for a high contrast photo).
Also, you'll likely need to lower the saturation of the image a bit (Ctrl + U, adjust Saturation to like -30ish?)
