the camera light meter reads the lightest and darkest spot to estimate a flash range. So I guess yours focused mostly on the pure white areas and left the others dark. Because if it gave off enough flash to cover the darker areas, then Vinnie would've been TOO white. ANd well since the cameras auto you don't really have much option because the light meter usually goes all over the screen in some cameras, but try to hold the button halfway down on the dark areas and then move the camera where you want to take the shot so that you trick it. SOmetimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
