Earlier, we talked about how the photographer's job, when composing a shot, is to…help guide the viewer's eye.…We looked at tonal control as a way to lead the viewer through your image.…But there are many other options, and one of the most effective is vignetting.…Of course, earlier we viewed vignetting as a problem, and we looked at ways to remove it.…But there will be times when adding a vignette might be exactly what you need to…guide the viewer's eye through your image.…Now, we could have added a vignette in Camera Raw,…but honestly I didn't think of it at the time because I didn't know the image needed it.…
It wasn't until I got here to Photoshop and made some other corrections that I…started to realize well, it's kind of just grass going out both sides of the…image here. My eye doesn't really know what to do; it just wonders off.…Maybe if there was a vignetting, because I can see a little bit of it here,…maybe if there was all the way around the image, that would keep the viewer's…eye here in the center.…
