What Is Air Pollution?
Air pollution is a complex topic as so many factors are responsible for the poor quality of our air. However, simply put, air pollution is any chemical, physical or biological change which causes the atmosphere to become dirty and thus risks not only our own potential for survival but also that of other animals and plants.

Disclosure: everyone will still think you are annoying when taking pics at the restaurant, but at least you will get better shots.

 

Use natural light (ditch the flash)

Everyone in the restaurant, including your hubby/bf, hates you when you take a picture using flash. And your pics don’t even come nice.That fake light is not doing any good to your photo, so it is about time you ditch the flash.
