I am trying to get this look in my post production, and I have no clue on how to do it. Here is a couple links to the work:

Those photos don't seem to have much retouching so yeah you get that on camera. I suggest posting this on the photography forum instead.

to create those particles just do this.

1- open a blank new layer
2-fill it with black
3-filter, noise, add noise about 64%to 70%
4-open filter again, artistic, dry brush, size 5 or 6
5-change the mode to screen

if you wish to change the color  to white just invert the layer
and change the mode to multiply.

Is that what your looking for?

Those are two VERY different styles.  What are you talking about specifically?

To me, it's two different looks but both are back lit.

Hello from Columbus!

www.clickinmoms.com has a lot of pro/serious amateur photographers who do matte processing  - it's mostly women but you can always join for bit and lurk.  They have a post processing forum and people are quite helpful.

They also sell Lightroom Film Art Presets in their shop and these may give you the look you are seeking. 

Plus they are nice and won't make fun of you smile

PS - I also like www.rachelnicholephotography.blogspot.com - more intense than your examples but she just came out w/a new action set that I love.
