Problem is at 1.4 dof is so shallow,

Learn to use a shallow DoF. You have one of the best lenses in the world to work with, embrace it! Try to visualize the focal plane, in particular how the angle changes as the camera moves. You may find you get better results with your subject off center, where the angle of the focal plane cuts across the subject in a way where more is in focus.

It is not easy, and you have to do it a lotto get the hang of it— but you be rewarded with shots that otherwise would not exist. Hopefully, they will include many keepers
