  3. Sometime your speed is slow and your entire photographs is shaken
  4. No idea of Aperture, should I add background or not, Do I need shallow background?
  5. Shooting in harsh light condition
  6. Shooting in low light condition without tripod, you get shaken, spoiled photos
  7. Carrying wrong gears to shoot
  8. Poor understanding of wide, zoom, telly lenses etc Don't know the correct lens for right subject
  9. Poor knowledge of exposure compensation, exposure etc
  10. Poor technology of editing or post processing etc 
  11. No habit of maintaining photography kit (worst habit but most of the beginner photographer has this habit)
  12. Shooting in the wrong camera setting, less knowledge of Manual, Program, Auto, Speed, Aperture etc 
  13. Never read the camera manual to know your camera.
  14. Never used the tripod too shoot, think its a waste accessories 
  15. Never shot in RAW 
  16. Never read photography literature or attend any photography classes to understand the technology
  17. Always ready to capture amazing photos but don't want to take pain 
  18. Never wait for the right weather to shoot but shoot in all the weather conditions, sometime shoot in rain without taking extra cautions
  19. Shoot male, female models without having knowledge of proper makeup, hairstyling, poses etc

In short or conclusion - Poor technology plays a major role behind every bad photos. You must understand your subject and its requirement of technology.
