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. Each photograph is individually hand printed in the darkroom and will vary based on factors such as artist preference, chemistry and temperature. The image displayed on the website is a digital scan of the original negative and should be considered a representation of the printed version of the art.
