Photographic Story St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, Florida – Sand dunes are a fun and challenging shape to photograph. If the light isn’t right, they become flat…so it takes a lot of sunshine to make a good picture. The day I photographed these dunes it was hot, bright and sunny, with storm clouds hovering over the horizon that gave the picture a small amount of tension. With the yellow sea oats standing out against the black storm cloud, they became a focus of attention. It was perfect and I took the picture. 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.
