I love going on location with models, camera portrait (vertical), takes crisp pictures, face is focused etc... flip the camera to landscape (horizontal) and it focuses on the background more than model... the red dot focus point is set to model face and all...I feel it is a in-camera setting.. and would love to know what setting I have wrong... here is what my settings are on at the moment... nikon d3100

AF Area mode: Dynamic - area AF
Spot metering
focus mode: single servo AF
Face priority

If someone could please tell me what settings are wrong, and why.. or what settings I should have to get crisp results all the time (other than ISO, shutter speed etc)

I use camera in Manual A Mode, unless studio is in Manual mode, but still have same problems.. thank you for your time
