Do you know how to adjust the white balance?

but asleep

if you are shooting in manual, you can take a pic of something white (i use a coffee filter) then turn your white balance setting to manual (mine has 2 triangles, but i have a canon). then go to your menu and there should be an option for picking the picture (the white one) to use as the white balance. it will adjust the wb and won't look yellow. it sounds complicated but it's not once you figure it out.

you can also change it in an editing prgram, but it may not look as good.

clear as mud??

The paper will look white... that's ok. just use that to set your manual WB. Also, the fl. lighting or tungsten wb should make it look less yellow.

http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/whitebalance.htm maybe this will help? or maybe not.. he just says to use the auto WB..hehe!

ETA: maybe this? http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/post/11622756 sorry I don't have time to read it now..

I don't usually do custom white balance because I forget to change it between locations. However, if you shoot raw, instead of jpg, it's really easy to correct the white balance when you get to the computer.

Using the "vivid" setting will actually bring out MORE yellow in your photos. I keep mine on portrait, but also always shoot raw.

Do you have photoshop? You can use the photoshop raw editor to correct white balance, along with tons of other things. My guess is that you can also use a Nikon software (I assume a disc came with your camera, just like my Canon came with their software) to edit the files. Since the camera's software usually comes with it, that's the cheapest way to go.

I forget to change it, too! But, I don't shoot inside often, so I don't mess with it much! Thanks for your reply! I'm glad somebody could explain it better (and knows more about it!)!
