I suggest that you bump up the ISO and so reduce the shutter speed to eliminate motion blur.

Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.

I'm not sure about that, I rather like the blur.

Thanks for the suggestion but I do like how the blur convey motion. I like it when only one or two are in focus as it gives a certain sense of dynamism to the frame. This is just me of course. I have friends who want to have everything sharp sort of like stopping motion.

Of course if I were covering basketball or tennis I would try to freeze the action. Though I might experiment in biking and track.

Re: 6D @ a theater rehearsal

They look good. I have done a lot of show photography, but it's for publicity- and that blur would never fly there, though it looks artful here.

Plus they like to use theatre lighting, so I normally shoot at ISO 200-3200. And that's even with the actors holding their poses.

I know what you mean but I would prefer to sharply capture those intense facial expressions. I guess its just a question of personal preference.
