He favored a different approach to his work, he made platinum prints. Which is a process that gave images a rich tone. He started using the appearance of drawing, prints and watercolor in fished photograph prints. Alfred used natural elements in his work. Such as rain, snow, and steam to make the photo complete. “Let me here call attention to one of the most universally popular mistakes that have to do with photography - that of classing supposedly excellent work as professional, and using the term amateur to convey the idea of immature productions and to excuse atrociously poor photographs.” Citation: "Alfred Stieglitz quotes."

"The nearer we get to Nature the sweeter will be our lives," Emerson wrote, "and never shall we attain the true secret of happiness until we identify ourselves as part of Nature.” Most of his work was of landscapes, and in most of his work, many people were doing work or labor. He used sharp focuses but then later started using more soft focuses in his work. Citation: "Naturalist Photography." Lee Gallary. N.p., n.d. Web. 14 Sept. 2011. .
