HALF DOME 48 © 2006
Yosemite National Park, CA
Photographic Story My favorite lenses are wide angle. I rarely use long lenses, however on this image I photographed using a 450mm on my 5×7” view camera. I waited for around two hours to get this picture because I wanted the light and shadows on the face of Half Dome to be perfect. While I waited other photographers came and went and came again, always asking why I was still there! But I finally got what I wanted. This is one of my favorite pictures of Yosemite. Analog – Archival Silver Gelatin Photograph Clyde’s silver gelatin black and white images are created using an 8” x 10”, 11” x 14”, or 12” x 20” view camera. Clyde prints his images in his own darkroom on fiber-base paper in a limited edition. The photographs are selenium toned, then mounted and matted to current archival standards. His images come in sizes from 8” x 10” inches to 5’x 8’ feet. His love of art and nature is seen in the exceptional detail and more subtle textures of his photography. Each photograph is individually hand printed in the darkroom and will vary based on factors such as artist preference, chemistry and temperature. The image displayed on the website is a digital scan of the original negative and should be considered a representation of the printed version of the art.
