Issue 56: All of our yesterdays
What are you using for your vignettes?
I shoot everything in RAW these days and use PhotoShop's Camera Raw editor for the vignetting. I'm usually not as harsh as this, but it emphasized the natural lens vignetting that my 55-200 has.
I believe the Camera Raw editor is the same module as in Lightroom, but I don't get these drastic effects in Lightroom at all. And what natural vignetting does your zoom have and why do you have it? Are you using DX lenses on a full frame body? Just curious.
I made that interminable rooster crow my new ringtone, by the way. Thanks for that.
I don't know why I get vignetting. I thought all lenses did. Anyway, it is just a hint at it at some apertures. I believe the wider the aperture the more vignetting I get--particularly when zoomed in. I did use LAB color too--that pops the contrast a bit. I don't recall, however, putting any contrast on the image with "curves."Good idea about the rooster. I'll have to try that.
If you are in the NIkon world, I expect that you might be using a DX zoom on a full frame body. That might explain why the image doesn't cover the full sensor area...? What camera are you using?
Ah, I get it. I never understood why vignetting happened. No, my lense and my camera (D40) are supposed to match.
