To get your background right you need to select the correct white balance setting. Using auto white balance is a bit hit and miss. Alternatively, if you shoot in RAW you can tweak white balance in Lightroom or Photoshop / Elements. The wrinkles - have you ironed the muslin? Is it hung tightly enough?

Looking at the exif data from your shot and the fact you were only 6 feet from your subject, you should be able to go manual and reduce the ISO to 100 - 200 and widen the aperture to f5.6 or f4. Set the shutter at 1/60th and have a go.

I think an ISO of 800 on the D3200 is too high for clean results.

what have the Roman's ever done for us?
