I’m taking a little vacation in a tiny lake house for a while. A much-needed one. It’s been really nice to get off the computer for a while (my job is behind a computer, as are most of my hobbies) and instead go hiking and relax on the dock, with my camera of course.
After editing a photograph I made I decided to try to vaguely describe it to MidJourney using the new TestP algorithm, and I was actually shocked at how well it did with the scene, but also how much like a photograph the output looked.
This got me thinking… I love MidJourney, and can’t get enough of it, but there really is something special about being there, actually being in a space and capturing it. I might use AI to make photo-like bodies of work in the future, but the reason I love photography is that I look at the image years later and recall the feeling of being there.
