CC needed for color issues

both are SOOC

this is my wonderful husband who had just woken up and had to be my model! Smile
I'm not going for perfect shots, but rather working on one thing at a time...until I lose patience!

Anyways, I'm working with a p&s, so I can't manipulate as much as I'd like. One looks really yellow and the other looks pink. Any ideas on how to fix it from my camera, not photoshop? Does that make sense? I want to learn how to use my camera better before I begin editing too much in PS.

I know exposure is what I need to learn most now, but I just am at a loss on how to learn it with my p&s. any advice, CC is welcome!

Camera: Sony DSC-W55
Exposure: 0.077 sec (1/13)
Aperture: f/4.0
Focal Length: 10.9 mm
ISO Speed: 100
Exposure Bias: 0 EV
Flash: Off, Did not fire

DSC00202

Exposure: 0.067 sec (1/15)
Aperture: f/4.0
Focal Length: 10.9 mm
ISO Speed: 100
Exposure Bias: 0 EV
Flash: Off, Did not fire

DSC00218

Apart from your DH being a bit of a Hottie, I like # 1 the best it does appear only slightly yellow to me and the colour looks more real than # 2.

For a P&S you are doing marvelously

He is a handsome guy!
The first one is better in my opinion. It is a tad bit yellow. I don't know how to fix it though...maybe up your ss?

Thanks ladies! I think he's nice to look at too Wink

I'm thinking it's my SS too, but I have no idea how to change the setting on my camera which is sooo frustrating.

#1 much nicer. I don't see the yellow in it, but I'm always having too much yellow!

it's the white balance in camera that causes the color changes. with a P&S I don't think you have control over that. I think you just have to tweak while editing. it's a pain, but usually there aren't such strong differences in color between almost identical pictures.

I don't think the first looks really yellow. I'm calibrated, and he seems fine to me.

The first one looks fine to me also, colorwise. The second one is too red and cool.

I'm not calibrated but think that the 1st pic looks good, I don't really see the yellow. I also think you are doing very well for a p&s. Nice model Wink

#1 looks good to me. My only cc would be to maybe turn his body a tad next time so the shot is not quite as "straight on". TFS!
