try M mode instead of adjusting EV ...

So would my next try be to increase my iso to 3200 and also increase my shutter speed, that would be possible with the current lighting conditions. Then clean up the noise?

you essentially have 3 things to worry about:

  • aperture - which is wide open at f/2.8
  • shutter speed - which is too slow at 1/125s
  • iso - which is currently at 1600

by increasing your iso to 3200 or even 6400 (the t1i can crank it up to 12800 per canon's website) you could get your shutter speed up to 1/250s or faster.  try M mode and keep the settings where you need them.  adjusting EV only tells your camera to adjust the 3 things automatically.

why let your camera mess around when you know what the issue is? shutter speed is the priority ...

good luck ...
