Im looking for a little advice, i always shoot raw in the srgb colour space in camera (nikon d90) now i hear so many people say shoot in adobe srgb, edit in srgb and the when you export your files to jpeg convert to srgb. Is this a recommended technique ? Could this help my issue with red/orange colours ? Thanks Scott

I shoot in Adobe RGB 98, process in Prophoto (because it is larger than either Adobe RGB or SRGB), then save in SRGB for the web or printing services. It all depends on your workflow, I use a profiled monitor and printing to display my work at home and rely on whatever the viewer has on their system. As I understand it the order of gamut size from small to larger is SRGB, Adobe RGB 98, most DSLRs, Prophoto. Prophoto enncompases all of the red and blue with only a small amount of yellow being clipped when converting from the camera sensors native gamut.
It's best to shoot, process and display in the widest possible color space.
Will shoot for fame...fun...food... a heck I'll shoot anytime anywhere.

It doesn't matter what color space you set the camera to when you shoot RAW (a RAW image has no color space). You can select it later depending on what the final use of the image will be, e.g. sRGB for web use.

It is not important to choose the color space if you are shooting RAW. You can assign any color space you desire in your editing program later. The sRGB color space in your camera is important if you use the JPEG s generated by your camera or you shoot JPEGS instead of RAW.
