    How do I fix this circular banding of the background?

    Add noise after selecting the background.
    It's called posterization
    Tip - Shoot Raw files, convert the Raw files to a broad color space like ProPhoto RGB, make sure you edit in 16-bit mode, and use Adjustment Layers as much as possible.

    Oh! Ya! Lightroom doesn't have very accurate selection tools, and doesn't let you make any of those other Tip choices, though Lr's Develop module is a version of the ProPhoto RGB color space known as Melissa RGB.
    Photoshop Camera Raw lets you set the color bit depth and the color space. You can set 16-bit mode in Photoshop: Image > 16 bit.

    Since you have a nice clean image against a plain background. I'd open a new canvas and fill it with the background color of your choice, then select the subject and place as a layer on the new canvas.

    I would do a fast/crude mask and fill the background with a black or grey-black gradient

    Ok, I'm looking at it now and it's set to sRGB ICE### so, I need to set it to ProPhoto RGB?

    @Evertking do you only have LR, I thought you had PS also? The color banding around the subject makes it looks sort of like you might have burned down the background on a layer copy of the image rather than using a 50% gray layer.

    Well, this will tell ya how green I am. I have been using Photoshop in 8 bit. I set it to 32 now. I do shoot in RAW. So.. Im no Photoshop wizard but I do know that there is a gigantic difference in 8 bit vs 32.
    I may just re edit the picture..lol

    Looking at it where?

    Use 32 bit for HDR. Use 16-bit for regular images.
    32-bit mode will degrade performance:
    Optimize performance Photoshop CC

    Do you mean do a selection of him? I not sure about the pen tool yet but I am ok with the quick selection brush. If you don't mind could you explain to me how?
