Not enough Depth of Field. Plus I used the camera's auto focus all day. I think I have to stop doing that.

I doubt you're correct on either of those 2 things. Most lenses that come with a D3400 are pretty small aperture cameras meaning plenty of DOF. And a properly functioning D3400 autofocus is pretty good, at least center point in decent light.

That doesn't sound right to me either.

Someone can undoubtedly clear that up if you post a sample photo.
