Rodney Smith shoots only with film. He has never used Photoshop and goes to the post office almost every day to stay in touch with his family and friends.
Yes, Smith may appear old-fashioned — especially to his colleagues in the picture-taking business — but his sense of imagination and storytelling are anything but. The New York-based photographer insists that despite his analog approach, his process is very involved.
“My photos might look simple and well-composed,” Smith said, “but there is so much work that goes into them, and I’m often frustrated until I finally take the perfect shot.”

I’m ordinarily not a fan of set-up photos, but these are so beautiful and the result of so much detail work - in the field, not on a computer - that I can’t help admiring them.
