Default Please Help, Blurry Images

I have a Canon eos rebel xti, for this pic I was using a canon 50 mm f1.4 lens

I thought at first since I have been using av mode that my shutter speed was to slow for taking pictures of children however today I changed my iso and that gave me a faster shutter speed as well as it was a bright day outside so why are my pictures all blury?? Thanks for any help!

How fast is fast? If your camera or lens has some sort of vibration control make sure that it is on. Are you shooting in one of the program modes or M,A,S, or P? Is the focus on manual or auto. If your focus allows face recognition you should use it. With the amount of light in the image and the speed of the lens that you're using your photos should not be burry.

I think you need your AV to be higher. I would adjust it to 4.5-6

i dont know about cannon camera's but nikon have a auto and manual switch on the lens aswell as the camera body make sure they are both set to the same as this often causes out of focus issues if it is the same that is..... also does it work ok in auto?

It seems it focused on the hat. Try manual focus, otherwise turn on the face recognition.

Basically what everyone else more intelligent said

Yeah, what they said. Your focus point is on the rim of the hat rather than on the child's eyes. Looks like you just barely missed it. I would just practice focusing on different points when you shoot your pics.

What a worthless post. Why would you be so rude to someone simply asking for help in getting better? I'm trying to find something in the original post that would be offensive to you but all I see is a request for help. Why the rudeness??
