Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

That could be a matter of simply the f-stop setting (the 'exposure' that is.) High-contrast settings could result in 'overexposure' of the brighter parts of the framing.

But it could also be a matter of adjusting the White Balance setting.

What instructions do you need to help with this problem?
