  1. For me, I think #2 would work as a profile of the person pictured – if, for example, she was the lead singer in the band “Blue” – Image #3 would be better suited for a line of slacks named “Blue” in an advertising campaign. For #1, I would make the font bolder or increase the point size – the small text and the small image are fighting against the large bit of negative space. These are 100% opinions, which carry no real-world validity!

      • Well im new to this so i really appreciate them. Ive just put some more up. They had a dark background to I was unsure how best to show the type – any suggestions?? Thank you πŸ™‚

      • First and foremost these are great shots – I like the dress color with the model’s hair color. I assume you are doing the type in Photoshop – then just copy the dark text layer and then change the type to white (or a lighter color) and have place under the dark type with a bit of an offset – much like a drop shadow – you can also rasterize and then add noise and other effects – just what I have done, I’m sure there are many other suggestions from folks. Good luck!

      • PS – sometimes a font just won’t work and then you have to change it up – I get this all the time in print, where the designer chooses a small serif font reversing out of a black background – not good. Bodoni said (and I always remember this) “Type is to be read”
