I think I got it. I took the White balancing off of Auto and started playing with it. Here is another picture.

I think you've got it.

The issue with using desk lamps is that images will come out looking yellow. What I usually do is leave WB in auto and adjust white balance in post-processing. All it is is moving a slider around, really, so it's not that big of a deal. Still, your images do look good

Shoot RAW. Nail the white balance every time.
Diffuse Lights. Softer shadows, more even light.

EDIT:

A little Photoshop goes a long way:

As of now I have never done any post processing. I have Corel Paintshop Photo Pro X3 that I use to do logo's and graphic images etc. I know this program is designed to do PP; however, I have never utilized it for this purpose.

I'm going to try diffusing the lights. I'm not sure if I completely understand what more even light is. Well, I don't understand how to create it.

I would love to get Photoshop but I can't afford it at the moment. I just spent a lot of money on new pc parts. I will try use my cheaper program.

Even the Microsoft Office Picture Manager works great for editing white balance and saturation etc.

You never want light directly from a source onto your subject, you want it diffused off something.
