The walls are a cream color, but not as yellowish as the photos look. I'll have to check the white balance - as I've only started playing with the camera this weekend, I'm still low on the learning curve. I would like to avoid the flash - I get enough negative feedback on shiny surfaces in my photos as it is, and I don't mind a bit of chiaroscuro, if the rest of the color range is correct.
Do you use daylight, artificial light (or maybe a mix)? Saturation looks high too; maybe it would help to lower it a bit.
Unhappily, my living room is a typical NYC apartment - long, narrow rooms, and if I change the locality of the photo setup, the world will see what a sty the place really is
Hehe. I see.
