The problem isn't that I don't know what to do, it's that I never take the time to put it all into practice. Stick the camera on a tripod? Oh, I'll balance it on a pile of books. Set up some off-camera flash? Naaaaaaah. I do pay attention to my aperture and zoom setting, and keep an eye on the white balance, and I've even been known to use a reflector, but that's as far as it goes. I take bobbins photos, then try to fix them in post-production – or simply grovel at Mr Robot to take pictures for me. I've even been known to rely on my iPhone for blog photos because I can't be bothered to get out a proper camera. It's quite sad, really, because a few hours spent finding backgrounds and subjects for photos can be really good fun.
