    Explore layer masks.

    Make a very very good selection, put the figurer on its own layer, and
    use a Channel Mixer Adjustment Layer with Monochrome checked.

    use the magnetic lasso to go around the person very carefully, use the magic
    wand to add/minus, clean up the selection
    check the mask by using the squares at bottom of tool bar, brushes can be
    used on the mask
    feather the selection for a softer blend
    make a new adjustment layer, select hue-saturation, move center slider to
    at bottom of the palette click the mask from selection button

    If i use this technique my image changes to strange black and white a
    lot too soft constrast and looks like a kind of infrared photo.

    Any tips?

    you might also try using the sponge to desaturate the person, leaving it in

    yeah read my post
    channel mixer is not the best choice for this

    just FYI on turning images to B&W
    this method is the best way to control the values

    and for more about how to use the channels method

    Forget selections

    Desaturate the entire picture then use a fairly soft edged history
    brush to bring the color back where you want it.
