Yeah, a 1-second exposure will do that!
Also, I don't think the flash placement was very effective; two of the guys are almost totally shadowed by the others, and none of them are really flatteringly lit IMO. A single flash was enough at that range and at your chosen ISO of 400, but I would have placed it more-centered over the lens and about a foot above head height. (That would also have allowed a faster shutter to eliminate motion blur, while still capturing the BG.)
This shot wasn't used...only here to demonstrate what I was dealing with. I was flustered and rushing myself because they were about to open.
Hindsight is 20/20 and I agree, moving the flash to where you've described would have helped immensely!
The first part of my quote you have there was in regards to image 1 or 2, not the group shot.
One of these days I'm hoping to find a mentor in my local area to help guide me through some of these conditions I find myself in. In the meantime though and as always, a big thank you for always helping me here on the forums!
