Started flight in shade of tree line on a very cloudy day. On the AUTO setting, color and exposure were fine at low altitude. As the drone cleared the tops of the pines (about 90’) the image went white. The lower half of the frame had the pine tops and the upper half on hazy dense clouds. What setting will allow camera to correct for exposure? Is it a manual setting done before flight or done in response to the image on the phone screen?

Make sure your auto exposure is not set to locked. It's this one:

On manual exposure, you can change the exposure at will (even in flight). If you lock exposure (like above), the camera will retain the exact exposure you had at the time of lock (until it is unlocked).
