Photographic Story Thunderstorms are a vital part of the summer in Florida. I love the way the clouds roll across the sky and build to a powerful and awe-inspiring spectacle of light and sound. However, it can be dangerous to photograph under these conditions. During this storm I had lightening striking all around me. After one very close strike, I covered up my camera and hurried back to my truck without the camera, to wait until the storm ended. 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.
