Vignette effect: these effects are occurred by often an unintended and undesired effect caused by camera settings or lens limitations. Later they are used in Morden digital word for design and photography to do creative effects.
More from Wikipedia:

In photography and optics, vignetting (from French “vignette”, pronounced /vɪnˈjɛtɪŋ/) is a reduction of an image’s brightness or saturation at the periphery compared to the image centre. 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 centre, 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. 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.
