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.
