Difficult to say Dodge because I am not familiar with the menus of this model. Some controls will increase the brightness of the screen.
You are looking for a control that retains the auto exposure feature but allows you to tweak the setting. Try a test shot and play with the feature you should see the image getting darker or lighter

Of the three the last one is the best of the bunch. Try being a bit boulder in your range of adjustments
The camera should have an AV setting, You only take one shot this time but you can override the exposure by decreasing it or increasing it.

Try setting a couple of clicks to the left side,the – side and see the difference on an auto setting. In strong sunlight the exposure should be a bit darker and more detail will show up.

This is one use of using bracketed exposures. In this instance the 3 images are loaded into a HDR programme (Photomatix Pro) and using a process called `Tone Mapping` this type of image can be produced.

That’s right mate the flash is a no no on this one. The trick is to set the amount of under and overexposure small to start with
One thing to watch is that when the camera is turned off it normally reverts to a single exposure.

Nice shot Paul. I saw a nice tip the other day where a twig is attached to the feeder. When the bird lands on it you do your bit and the feeder is not in shot and looks more natural. Going to give that a try.

7.15, nothing wrong with being keen, nice overall exposure and good detail. The shrub shot can be difficult because you have a lot of depth and different lighting conditions and a range of colours. The eye can get confused and you end up not sure what you are looking at.
Not sure about your camera but there may be a feature that allows you to take 3 shots automatically with the first shot an overall exposure, the second shot is underexposed and the third is overexposed. You can then decide which one looks better.
A tripod is good news on the longer exposures but can be a bit slow in setting up a shot. A monopod, especially when using a bigger zoom will steady things up and allow you more freedom of movement.
