A quick photography tip ...

Have you ever taken a picture indoors and gotten strange colors?  This was probably a result of the room lighting.  Cameras expect white light, such as daytime sunlight.  Normally, incandescent lights create a yellow color cast, fluorescents (including CFLs) create a green color cast, and LEDs create a blue color cast.

Your camera or cell phone may adjust indoors, but it can’t accommodate every situation.  To fix this during the day, you can dim or turn off the indoor lights and use outside light from a nearby window or door.  If that’s not an option, dim the house lights and use your camera’s flash.  It is color balanced for your camera and can help correct for indoor lights.
