Reset your camera to factory defaults.  You set something wrong.

1.). Are you shooting RAW or JPG? Raw is great but looks dull straight OOC, and so it requires you to juice it up in post processing.
2.). Are you doing the grey/white card properly? Take a sample of the white card in your subject's hands for a baseline, then use that as the custom WB either in camera or in post?

Why do so many people say "FER-tographer"? Do they take "fertographs"?
