    The steeplechase is a track and field event where athletes run around a track with obstacles that they must hurdle over artificial ditches, hedges, and water pits while racing.

    This frame was shot at the UC San Diego Track and Field facility in the late afternoon. The cement bleachers to the right face east, and the sun is setting behind them. In this area of the track with the water pit, the shadows grow quickly as the sun begins to set.

    I used a Nikon D200 Body and 12-24mm f/4.0 AF-S Nikkor Lens for this shot.

    Getting low to the ground while using a wide focal-length yields the perspective you see in the image, accentuating foreground elements and pushing away a cluttered background.

    A white balance in the range of ~3000K was applied at the time of shooting to accentuate the sky's blue tones and shade.

    As I explained during the "photo breakdown'' for my 2006 Water Polo shot, digital white balance can be seen as a customizable color filter that shifts between blue or yellow bias. For a regular picture during the daytime, under clear sky, we use "daylight balance" in the range of ~5600K to keep the sky and light from appearing too blue. The daylight balance of ~5600K adds yellow to the regular picture to make it appear "normal."

    In this picture, going towards the opposite direction from daylight balance towards ~3000K adds blue to the picture, enhancing the blue tones of the sky.

    The white balance itself is just a tool. Setting white balance, by name, to what the scene is will simply give you a regular picture. Knowing how white balance works allows you to use it as a tool to execute the image you have envisioned.

    For people with cameras that don't allow for manual, discrete Kelvin color temperature adjustments, the incandescent or "tungsten" white balance setting is roughly equivalent to 3000K. A daylight or "sunny" white balance setting is roughly equivalent to 5600K. A "cloudy" white balance setting is roughly equivalent to 6000K. A "shade" white balance is closer to 6500K.

    It doesn't say what the attractive models would get though. Would they get photos for their portfolio and valuable experience?

    Or, will they just help you buff your 400mm? :naughty:
