I was at it again, taking pictures of my baby. Some of you may recall similar pictures that I took that were overexposed. Again, I have some questions. The first pic was taken in portrait mode. The second was taken an Av because I wanted to try and focus on her eyes and can't, or don't know how, to change the focus in portrait mode. Of course, being new to all of this, the colors changed. I love the color in the first group of pictures that I took (before I changed the settings). What would I have needed to do to get similar results. Sorry if my questions are remedial. Your help is appreciated.
(Yes, I realize I did not achieve great focus on her eyes.)
