You might read how to do a "white balance" with your camera. Or, perhaps, it has a setting to use under tungstin lighting ... most digital cameras have one or both features, but I am not familiar with your model specifically so check your manual. Perhaps someone else will tell you exactly how to set white balance on your specific camera.

Sorry to be blunt, but RTFM (Read The Fine Manual) and figure out how to set the color balance. Depending on the camera, thereare at leastfourpossible ways to do it.

If after reading the manual something doesn't seem to make sense (perhaps a translation from Chinese via Hindi and Japanesse), ask for help in the forum for your specific camera. Figuring out how to ask for help will get some good answers form the folks who hang out here. Nobody bites, though some socks do get unraveled once in a while.

You can always fix it with software after the fact.

Maybe the best hint of all is: Always use a tripod when you shoot in poor light conditions, because the camera slow down the speed automatically.

This will help prevent blur from camera shake, but will not prevent motion blur from the subject. Also, this will not solve the poster's original question. The best bet, which has been suggested by others, is to set the white balance to the correct setting as described in the manual.

Hey Hunter, (Triple H)....LOL

Can you post the picture? A lot of times color casts can be easily corrected in post processing. If you can post the picture, I will try to correct it for you.

Other than that, Bill's advise is correct. Read how to set the proper white balance on your camera for each different type of light setting.

Post the picture if you can, or would like some help.
