I took some family portraits using a Canon D60 and photo lighting (florescent 6400K bulbs sold for photography).
I have an odd effect I don't like:  the shadow areas around my eyes look a little green/yellow, like a bruise; and my nephew's face looks a bit yellow. 

Using Adobe Lightroom, I've tried playing with the color temp/tint sliders after using a neutral eyedropper as a starting point, and I've tried the different settings under Camera Calibration.

I'm using Lightroom and Photoshop.
Any ideas?

Hi John,
I think the fluorescent lights are the problem. Even if they claim to be for photographic use, their spectrum is not continuous and 6400K is quite high.
Is there a point close to the faces that can be used for a white/grey balance? That would be you best bet to correct the colour bias. Next time, it would be worth taking a calibration shot with a grey balance card help close to a face with the camera WB set on, say, cloudy (close to 6500k) and not auto WB.

Hi John,
I have a Canon D 60 with camera profile plugged in.
It would be really nice and easy if you could email the worst offender so we could have a peek.
 
My email is wathree.ssz@verizon.net
I see Terry's email is not public, so I will pass your image on to him too.

Have you diagnosed and fixed in 5 minutes.
