  1. I played around with this look for a while years ago. I attend F64 Elite critique sessions. He advised someone in the class against using a light vignette technique. He said it pinches in the image. Dark vignettes can do the same thing if they are too strong. When I use a dark vignette, I let in some of the lights so the image still goes to the edges. My opinion is subjective. And your style is your choice. Just passing on what I was taught.

    1. Thank you for your comment… It is a technique that I’ve been playing around with that I got off of Woody Walters from Digital Photo Candy… It is more about using clipping masks, colours from the image and powder brushes than adding a plain vignette. In a normal image I agree about vignettes they can make or break an image… however in these images, I playing around with it is more about creating digital art.
