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.
