I have been experimenting with the type on my poster... it has kind of been a struggle, but I feel that am slowly getting closer. As Marty says, "make a moment," with the text, I am trying to do that but at the same time have the photograph be seen plus the text. Making them both work together has been the challange. I just really needed to focus on the text now and making that a piece and then combining the image and the text. I think the bolder typeface is more successful with the dominance of the image, they look more in sync/ in balance with one another.-This is more of the direction I think I am leaning towards now. These top three posters are all the same concept, but with slight differences in the placement and ampersand opacity. I think this helps break up the text as well as the composition of the whole poster.
The ones below are examples of more variation attempts.
