Visit any food blog or book store and you’ll be overwhelmed by the array of scrumptious recipes accompanied by wonderful photography!

Sticky stacks of pancakes drizzled with rich syrup on a clean plate just calling your name to pull up a chair – you know the shots. Sometimes the photography takes center stage, with the recipes taking a secondary role.
