Vignetting is a powerful artistic tool for enhancing photography. Typically photographers think of it as a symmetrical darkening effect in the corners and along the edges of a photo. They can be used to subtly draw attention on the subject, bring balance to the composition, or even to enhance the image’s mood. Exposure’s vignette tools give photographers control over the viewer’s perception of the shot, including the ability to create asymmetrical vignettes with gorgeous analog irregularities. Effects like these bring your photos to a new level.
We made this video to demonstrate how to create and control irregular vignettes in Exposure. You’ll see how to manipulate the appearance of the look, including moving the vignette center to direct the viewer’s eye. We also show you how to intensify the vignette for a dark, dense effect using several layers.
