    Pretty new to this.. first prime also...

    I'm assuming don't even try f1.4 when trying to take pictures of kids that won't stand still?

    Any other tips?

    motion blurry or bokeh blurry? at f1.4 you should be able get a high shutter speed. are you using autofocus?

    motion blurry.. maybe cause i was trying to pan the damn thing. haha

    um also any advice on how to say... get a group shot all focused? usually the very last person at the end is out of focus (say 3-4 people....)

    i've never done any panning shots, but i don't think it should matter if your shutter speed is fast enough.

    for the group shot, it depends on how far apart they are, and how they are arranged. f1.4 is super shallow depth of field. try increasing your aperture. any other tips from people? i'm not an expert on this stuff.
