Question Help with Legacy Quilt Photos- Printing Too Dark


I am a total newbie to DTG. Just received my Epson F2100 last week A friend of mine is making a legacy t-shirt quilt for her granddaughter. I offered to print the photos from a recent trip for her on t-shirts. The pictures are not great to begin with, shadows on faces etc. The problem I'm having is the printer is printing them pics darker than the original pictures and you really can't see the faces well. I have tried to play with the settings ie: brightness, color density, colors, etc. Any suggestions? This is printed on white tee shirts (Gildan 100% cotton) and has been pretreated.
