There are many ways to do the background fade. The only thing I really don't like about it, is the terrible banding you get after painting in colour on your image. No matter how much you'd blur and how much noise you'd add to disguise the banding, it will still show.
There is a way to reduce the banding to the minimum! It's not a brush, not a Photoshop action, but a tutorial that shows you how to do it by yourself in as little as 1 minute (once you get a hang of it.
This tutorial shows 2 different background fades.
1. Floor fade
2. Beanbag fabric fade
You can get it in our shop or on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TinyDreamsProps
Create beautiful images with no banding! Just look at the below image.
Here is an example with a natural and simple vignette (also shown in the tutorial), There is some banding on this image because of that vignette, but the fade is still very subtle and all attention is drawn to the subject.
