It’s important to focus the eyes of your audience on your subject and there are many ways to do this. One of them has become much simpler with the advent of digital photography and software. A slight vignette (darkening of the edges of the photo) will push your audience’s eyes into the photograph (first photo); similarly increasing the brightness of your subject is also used. Both can help with somewhat messy backgrounds. Some people insist on putting a vignette on every image and perhaps I should do it more often. Vignettes should be minimal almost invisible, your eye sees them but you hardly notice.
