Contant Growth

Thought I’d share another interesting picture from the Tim Burton themed Wedding! I thought the vines and flowers went well with the theme of the Wedding. The vignetting is from the on camera flash if you’re interested in that term the definition is below!

In photography and opticsvignetting (from French “vignette”, pronounced /vɪnˈjɛtɪŋ/) is a reduction of an image’s brightness or saturation at the periphery compared to the image center. The word vignette, from the same root as vine, originally referred to a decorative border in a book. Later, the word came to be used for a photographic portrait which is clear in the center, and fades off at the edges. A similar effect occurs when filming projected images or movies off a projection screen. The resulting so-called “hotspot” effect defines a cheap home-movie look where no proper telecine is used.

Vignetting is often an unintended and undesired effect caused by camera settings or lens limitations. However, it is sometimes purposely introduced for creative effect, such as to draw attention to the center of the frame. A photographer may deliberately choose a lens which is known to produce vignetting to obtain the effect, or it may be introduced with the use of special filters or post-processing procedures.
