This is a part of a series looking at a few examples from Lost Gallery of the seven most common problems of the amateur photographer.
1.) The photographer's own shadow is in the picture.
2.) Forgot to advance the film: The Double Exposure
3.) Blocked the lens with a finger or a thumb or something
4.) Somebody moved, either the subject or the photographer
5.) Not framed right, Missing heads, feet, people
6.) Improper lighting (Overexposed, Underexposed)
7.) Fogged negative from miss-loaded film or a damaged camera.
