What is the vignetting? 


In this tutorial, we will learn what is vignetting in photography 

Vignetting is progressive darkening of the angles of a photograph. These dark areas appear most often because of some medium quality lens

Vignetting may also depend on the focal length you used during the photoshoot. Most lenses that enable vignetting have wide angles or telephoto and vignetting will be especially visible at full opening. But it may also be that your lens is not adapted to your sensor format

How to avoid i

The simplest way is not to open the diaphragm too much then Vignetting should completely disappear if you close the diaphragm a few notches. 

You can also use a better quality lens, but here’s a cheaper solution: 

  • There are many software programs that easily and quickly correct vignetting. Lightroom or Photoshop are two of them. You can easily find some tutorials on them on Lightroom and Photoshop Tutorials


Artistic vignetting 

Many photographers use vignetting as an artistic effect which makes it possible to draw attention to a subject in the center of the image and highlight it. 

This effect is very easily achievable in Lightroom or Photoshop

Contrary to what many beginner photographers think; it is important to use software such as Lightroom whether you choose Lightroom Classic or Lightroom. So you will definitely save time in the processing and filing of your photos

The Lightroom training is available on the website if you want to learn to master the Lightroom software and manage effects like vignetting. Besides, you will have access to 65 detailed videos to become an expert in Lightroom. “FULL LIGHTROOM CLASSIC TRAINING”. 


Vignetting can come from four ways: 

  • Natural, due to the angle between the camera lens and the light hitting it mechanical, due to something being between your sensor and the source of light.
  • The lens not being adapted to the photograph you are taking.
  • Intentional, for artistic effects.  

Vignetting can be avoided or added using various softwares, such as Photoshop or Lightroom. Don’t be afraid to use it to improve the quality of your photos for more professional rendering.
