While I am waiting for a decent camera I would love to practice with lighting, angles, etc. I was just looking in the Photo of the Month area and realized that any pic I have ever taken pales in comparison with just about anything else I have seen on this site... except the snapshots I myself posted. I feel beyond inadequate and photo stupid right now. So can you provide some ideas on getting the right photos? I am just parcting with a piece of crap camera with lens issues right now (p&s hp), so right now changing aperture etc is not going to happen. What can I do to get good poctures of ordinary object? Best please to sit, stand, lie, best angle in relation to the light, up high? down low? Physically what can *I* do as the photographer to make my photos better?
