As I mentioned in my 5 for $5.00 post about Spring V, I have been a little absent from my usual daily blogging here at MLC. My sweet girl is back in preschool and so I am finding a little more time to get back to work.
Today I have a video for you on how to remove a common lens distortion called vignetting. We all know about vignetting because at times we add it to our images to draw focus toward our subject. While this kind of vignetting is a creative license we all take from time to time, there is a darker side (no pun intended...hardy har har) to vignetting.
Generally this kind of distortion occurs with lower level lenses, but that isn't always the case. Take my image for example, it was taken using a Canon 5d Mark III and a mid-range 85mm prime lens. You can see the edges are considerably darkened.
While it wasn't immediately apparent to me, once I ran the new (free) Correct Camera Distortion Action I am releasing today, I noticed a big improvement. I rarely notice the vignetting problem unless it is overcast outside and I am underexposing the image.
