Yosemite National Park, California
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 fiberbase 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.
