Photographic Story This image was taken at Ten Thousand Islands in Florida Bay. This small sand-spit of an island feels the affects of the storms that rage through Florida. Those storms create changes in it during every season. I enjoy coming back to it as often as I can to see how nature has shaped the island and photographing the changes. I photographed the scene in July with my 8×10″ large format view camera and 90mm lens. July is a wonderful time in Florida because the afternoon thunderstorms create magnificent skies, however the drawback is that there are a lot of mosquitoes out in the islands during the summer! 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.
