A student recently asked me why, when she changed the white balance (WB), the picture was still out of focus. The WB setting should be re-named color balance since it adds a color that may be missing from a scene. My Intermediate photo class was photographing the bridges and paths of the Mary Mix McDonald Woods during a recent class meeting. I decided to capture the same image with two different WB settings to let everyone know just what’s possible. Both shots are shown below. Of course, you could leave your camera set to the automatic WB position, but what’s the fun of that. I’ve always said there’s more to be gained when you practice the See — Think — Act method of photography.
