Using a Dimage Z2 digital camera, flash position is an issue on close up, but even from a distance I cant make item being photographed look like it does in professional mags etc?

Is the light a tungsten bulb? If so tungsten light is actually orange/yellow. If you were shooting with film you could get a tungsten balanced film, but im afraid i dont really know anything about digital, but you should be able to go on to your settings and change the white balance.
