Hi, i tried to shoot a really random moment of my gf and our dog and cat, i wanted to capture the dogs and cats emotions on this exposure but it went horribly wrong, i didnt have enough light and there was always movement and it was blurry... how can i in these random situations make a good exposure when i have a few objects in a different depth of field positions?
iam using all manual btw, could my focus be off? although i tried to capture them all in focus.....

For that shot I would expect f8 to be required and a much faster shutter speed to eliminate any motion or camera shake.

Bump that iso up to 1600 and go from there, or get a flash.

----
1.) Higher ISO as above - this gives you the opportunity to increase your shutter speed to avoid hand-held camera-shake
2.) Sharper blur-free images are obtained by increasing the ISO and selecting a 'smaller aperture' which actually means selecting a higher number f-stop such as F11/F16
3.) A really high ISO will allow you to select both a faster shutter-speed & a higher f-stop --> doing this increases the likelihood of creating 'grainy' images
4.) Simply activate a built-in flash (this will 'freeze' the action) and select a higher f-stop such as f11 to get
5.) You can lock focus on the nearest subject and then re-compose to get edge-to-edge blur-free images by selecting an Aperture greater than F8
