NOT... they won't stand still, especially trying to focus in the dark with wide open aperture. Anyway, here are two of my kiddos..

Excellent! I really like these. Nailed the focus, which isn't easy with kids. I've recently picked up a couple old MF lenses and have been practicing...

May I ask which lens this is?

Thanks! I find it more rewarding with manual focus.

I did it. First time using a Nikkor 85 f1.8D on 5D III. Manual focusing was difficult
