TETON BEAVER CREEK © 2006Grand Teton National Park, WY
Photographic Story Niki and I spent ten days photographing the Grand Tetons. The first morning, before the sun rose, we ventured out to the mountain range and were surprised to see the moon setting over the Tetons. The light wasn’t quite right in the morning, so we made it a point to return in the early afternoon when the light would cast shadows to create shape, form, and texture. Several days later, while photographing Teton Beaver Creek, Niki and I were walking along the creek when we heard a splash. My first thought was “Gator,” but of course, it wasn’t a gator; it was just a beaver. I chuckled to myself as I thought, “wrong state”! Digital – Archival Pigment Print This photograph was taken with an analog large format camera. After Clyde develops the negative, the film is scanned and edited in a computer program mimicking his darkroom techniques. The photograph is printed on an Epson Stylus 4800 or 11880 printer. Clyde uses archival Ultra-chrome K3 ink and prints on archival Harman Hahnemuhle paper. The limited-edition photograph is then mounted and matted to current archival standards. This is a limited edition series and each photograph is numbered.
