You need to adjust the white balance. What camera do you have?

The white balance has only these settings.

Auto
Daylight
Tungsten
Fluorescent

Which would you recommend?

Do you have Photoshop? if so that will be your best bet on getting rid of the blue, you have 14 K lights gives off a decent amount of blue light so your gonna see blue unless you remove it Photoshop cs2 looking at your camera i doubt that you have raw shooting abilities so if thats the case i dont know what to tell you

Try the same shot in all of your white balance settings and see what happens. That may do the trick.

If you have a POS camera then sometimes you have to resort to photoshop. Even most crappy cameras have a custom white balance which is all you would need here.

make sure one of your picture effects are off (if you have them).

that looks exactly like my digi-cam when i have the 'cool' setting on. gives kind of a winters day kinda feel.. and adds a lot off blue to the pic.
