Barrier Island, Naples, FL
Photographic Story I had been casually walking along the beach when I saw this log that had been washed up. It sat there all alone and seemed to look like a lonely animal of some kind. I decided to accentuate the loneliness by taking a long exposure, which would make the waves and the clouds become soft against the hard edges of the log. When I printed the image I liked the feeling of the contrast between soft and hard and was very satisfied with how it turned out. 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.
