It's done in post processing using whatever graphics manipulation software you know.

HTH.

Cheers!

if i'm not wrong, use a bigger hood would allow you to have that effect in your photos. Identically, you can also create that effect in Photoshop.
The effect you're talking about should be Vignetting. :)
good day

What you are referring to should be lens vignetting (light fall-off).

This occurs naturally depending on your lens and prescense of lens accessories such as hood, filters.

It can be achieved through PS as well :nono:

Here's a link to look up on before you get more tips on vignetting: http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Canon-Lenses/Canon-Lens-Vignetting.aspx

both ways also can.

using not the right lens hood or cut a hole with a black card will have less control of the vignetting, but once you get it right will save of ton of time post processing it.

professional portrait photographers being doing this for many decades, long before photoshop exist.

hope this help.

Post process - Vignette (corners fall off)

On cam? Try attaching a APC-S or DX lens on a Ful Frame Cam - That will be serious vignetting...

On a lighter note, just do adapter/lens stacking, vignette will happen even at wider aperture.

Advise for newbie is to do it in post process, through software, where it is more controllable..

Sometimes this vignetting effect is not desirable for every kind of shoot
and once it is achieve in your original raw shot (not through s/w), it takes quite a lot of effort to remedy it later part in your PP flow if you fell that vignetting may not suit final picture in the end..

Normally happens in ultra wide angle, where if you plonk in a thick filter or stack filters (put more than 2), the corners (which is the widest angle you are taking) will be clipped off by the filters. It's normally quite a hard clipoff, so if you see a soft nicer looking vignetting, most likely it's software processed.
