Default Black Diamonds, Progression, and Binding Angles

It's just about the end of my first season snowboarding. I've got all my own gear now, and I've progressed to the point where im just starting blacks and some park. I'm riding with a 12/-9 binding angle right now, but I feel its really hard to initiate my turns on the steeper blacks, would a change in binding angles help that? I lean forward , and keep my knees bent while riding but I still find it a challenge to initiate the turns. I dont have a problem on less steep terrain.
