World of Nobu, dishes in focus

I have a plan…. I’m getting sick of my family rolling my eyes every time I take an SLR to a restaurant and get embarrassingly snap-happy. I’m also tired of editing photos for hour upon hour, because it’s near impossible to get a good photo without flash (too intrusive) and […]
