BIG TALBOT 6 © 1989
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.
