    Hello, You might have already heard, but I am in the process of
    getting a magazine published. Now before you think, hmmm..., another
    magazine, this is not a usual magazine you would see when it comes to
    portrait photography. You see, I am publishing a magazine called
    "Blind Fold." All photographs will be black and white. On every page
    to the left the magazine will have a photograph of a portrait with a
    specific lighting style and on the right page there will be a little
    history about the artist and how they lit their subject. The
    difference in this magazine is that there will be no nude models.
    They will all be fully clothed. There will be no hint of sexual
    content. What I want to know from you is would you buy my magazine
    knowing that there will be a portrait on every other page that teaches
    others how to light their subject in a different way but there is no
    nudity in it. Do you think this magazine will sell?
    Thank you,
    Sincerely,
    Suzzie.

    Personally, I would put the portraits on the right, but otherwise it sounds
    like a good idea, even if it is not one that will make you rich. If the
    captions are truly informative and teach how you made the portraits, I know
    I would subscribe.

    The images should be on the Right and the text on the left because
    traditionally, we are accustomed to seeing substance (the article, art) on
    the right and crap like advertising on the left. If you don't know how
    that simple transposition can sink a publication, look at the deep
    pockets, Rockefeller funded Chicago (yes, Chicago) magazine of the early
    Seventies that sunk after three years while more modest publications
    thrived. They were so F*uped up.
