DEATH: Raydene Salinas

Death. A depressing concept. So rather than photographing something that I don’t particularly care to even think about, I decided to tap into my other passion, design.

Lately I have been enthralled with learning new techniques in Adobe Illustrator, with the help of the best graphic designer I know, Mike Low. He has patiently taught me things that I have previously only dreamed of being able to do, namely, a distressed look on letters. Cool.

On to the concept: Death. The inspiration for this design comes from photography, the career I’ve chosen to pursue. The incident: leaving my ISO at 400 when shooting on a bright sunny day with my trusty Olympus. If you own an Olypmus, or have ever used one, you know that it’s very particular about the ISO it prefers. Anything over 100 and your photos are noisy to the extend that they are no longer usable.

In short: ISO 100 or death.
