  • Font use with photography

    hey guys, what are your favourite fonts to use with black and white photography or sepia tone photos? I personally like to use typewriter fonts with sepia toned images.

    Welcome to the forum arcticj. Please read these important threads posted here. They will explain a lot about how the forum runs, from the rules and regulations to frequently discussed topics to the background on some of our lingo and inside jokes.

    I hope you enjoy yourself!

    It depends on the message I'm trying to convey for my client. I work in healthcare, which is a very forward-thinking, tech-heavy field. It wouldnt be appropriated for me to use typefaces from obsolete technology.

    Now if I did a piece on the history of one of our hospitals I might consider it.

      Hi arcticj, it really depends on the photo. Black and white photos can be taken of anything. The typeface chosen should suit the subject matter. The fact that it is black and white or sepia should be the first thing to consider when choosing a typeface.

      You wouldn't ask what font to use for colour photos would you?

      For example, contemporary wedding photos altered to sepia would not suit an eroded typewriter typeface.

      It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

        yeah i understand it depends on the client and subject matter, but for my personal use, i like grunge so i tend to accompany the image with an eroded typewriter font but i wouldn't dare use that font for a client whose putting together a wedding photo book but i know that some designers lean towards a set of fonts in regards to black and white and sepia. esp. when targeting certain age groups. i'm sorry, i should have been specific with my question.

          I believe (not sure) that you might still be able to outright buy CS6 directly from Adobe, but you had to physically call them and process it somehow over the phone (and they may discourage you every...

          Thank you, I'm glad you like them.

          I am considering using a different color for the portrait and the background, but I'm not sure yet how to manage it.

          These will be produced on an offset printer with a spot resolution of 1200 lpi. The plan is one spot color on each card, with no tints.

          I decided to give this a go. I think I prefer the original pattern, but the results are here for you to decide for yourself.

          Unless you find a CS6 the answer would by no. You are at the mercy of your subscription to Adobe.
          Also no telling how much longer they will support CS6.

          The fee still works out to about...
