mine's accidental tilting or not getting straight horizons. My biggest habit though is trying to move too fast through the shooting process. I need to remember that people want you to direct them and they don't mind too much if you take your time doing so.

I don't know that it qualifies as a habit as much as a fault, but this is one of my big things, too. I don't take enough time to see what the camera is seeing. That the group was not arranged as nicely as it could've been. Or I can't see someone's face clearly enough. Or that someone is going to be in shadows. And wait, is that a telelphone pole emerging from behind the bride's head? ugh.

I'm definitely one who has some bad habits. I don't consider tilting a habit, just what happens when you're not a tripod with a level. But my bad habit is not chimping enough. I trust my initial settings and when I look at the LCD, I realize, I turned toward the sun or the sun came out in the meantime. So, I need to look more often. Also, I'm so worried about getting the good stuff, I forget to shoot before and after it. For instance, the cake eating part. I anticipate it so much, I sometimes miss the face plant. That's when I'm glad I have 2 assistants.
