the blueberry or the muffin? you decide
Might I interrupt whatever exciting activities are occupying you, dear readers, at this moment, and ask your opinion?
I am about to meet with a simply SUBLIME food photographer here in London, about possibly (so exciting!) taking photographs for my eventual "book." Now here are some things I am wondering. And the reason I am asking you? Because she said, "You must ask yourself who your audience is to be."
I am hoping it will be YOU.
So. Do you like to look at/read/use foodie books that include photographs of ingredients, or of dishes in progress, or of finished dishes? I suppose the ingredient-based illustrations are more artsy, more for the joy of looking, where the dish-in-progress or finished dish might be more instructional. Does that make sense?
For example, the photographs above give you an idea of the sort of choice I am imagining. What do you like? One or the other, or both, or something else entirely?
If you have an opinion on this subject, do take a moment to let me know. It's all getting stupendously thrilling. And thank you!
