I am using your First Studio Umbrella kit and getting an orange cast to my photos. How can I fix this?

A color shift that is not what you intended, would be caused by your white balance not matching the scene.
If you are using digital:
The First Studio Tungsten lights are around 3200 kelvin and exposing your camera with a setting for daylight or strobe, which is around 5500 kelvin would cause this.
If this is the case, just set your camera for the indoor tungsten setting or manually around 3200 kelvin.
It would be a good idea to study white balance and learn how and when to use custom white balance (for critical work or mixed lighting).
If you are using a film camera:
Film is designated as daylight or tungsten. Using Daylight film and tungsten lighting will create the effect you mention.
