Fingerlick'n makes a point that a lot of brethren can benefit from. Different lamps have different colors. Tungsten bulbs give off warm (orange light) some florescents are greenish, leds can skew blue. If your camera doesn't have settings for different lighting situations then you'll have to use software to color correct it after the fact with a program like this. If it's light outside I'll stage my shots on a cutting board next to a north light window and use some bright white poster board as a reflector to fill in the shadows. And as everyone says a tripod is a must. Picking the right tripod is another whole can of worms. Good on ya for facing your photo woes.
