I have a Nikon D40 with a 35mm Prime lens. Most of my portraits are fairly sharp and in focus but when I try "distance" shots like a full body they are never in focus. I usually shoot hand-held in Manual mode and auto focus. What am I doing wrong? I am self-taught, trial and error so be gentle with the technical terms. I appreciate any and all recommendations.

ty using aperture prority an slect an aperture of around f5.6 and focus manually.
Are you using single (centre) focus point, focusing and re-framing? If not, what is your focussing technique?
