If you are using the Aperture or Shutter mode, you can adjust the exposure compensation by using the back wheel to make things brighter.

or use the built in flash

I try reading the manual but i do not think i am doing the correct thing.

Any creative mode, half shuttle than turn the back wheel will increase the exposure thus will make pictures brighter?

Than how to control the tone of potraits, mine seem very rosy.

You might be underexposing, hence some colour tones turn out bolder than they should.

Otherwise, desaturate in photoshop, or shoot RAW and tweak your white balance using colour temperature.

Shooting RAW, I find overexposing slightly renders less noise. You'd be surprised how much detail is actually retained if you overexpose up to a stop over with RAW.

maybe can check your in-camera WB balance also... i used to set it away from default and didn't know and wonder for a year why all my images always so blue... :(
