BIG TALBOT 6
Big Talbot Island State Park, Northeast Florida
Photographic Story This foggy photograph of Big Talbot Island was taken in the summer. The temperature was in the 90’s and the humidity was unbearable. I had a very difficult time focusing the camera because my glasses would fog up, then my lens would fog, then my ground focusing glass would fog and by the time I finished wiping one clear, another would fog up! I finally had to guess at the focus and just take the picture and hope it would work. 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.
