Is there some adj I can make to eliminate the ruddy faces I am getting I think it is coming from the incandescent lighting. I can correct it in photoshop, but I would much rather correct it at the source. I shoot a Sony 828. Do other cameras have this problem?

Do you have an example we could look at? If its what I'm thinking you're talking about, the fix is to use white balance.

I don't know if that camera supports it, but if so you can set a custom white balance that teaches the camera about the color cast the incandescent lighting produces. If you can't set a custom balance, many cameras have some preset color tempratures that might include the incandescent you're using.

Thank you for responding. I'm at the office and I only have e-mailed images. Let me know if they are of use.

Since your camera does have 5 white balance settings, try each of those first. You also have 1 custom white balance setting, so if one of the 5 presets aren't what you want, the custom setting should do it for you.

Thank you for all the help. I adjusted the white balance by doing a custom setting. The incandescent was not very good. Sorry about the model, but I only had myself available. Any other suggestions regarding the coloring or lighting would be appreciated. I did alter some other settings: EV +1.0, Sat. - , Sharpness - . The photo was shot in "A" priority set at 2.8.

I think it might be better if you don't take away the saturation and sharpness. That last one needs a little of both.
