Mimicking Photography

I am a photographer. I love it so much that I got a master’s degree in the subject. I like to think about how much the medium has changed, and how much it will change in the future… A few photography clubs I am in have begun to chatter about AI and its place in photography. Many scream about it, but like, I don’t ever see AI being accepted as photography.

Fundamentally, photography is defined as capturing light. So a camera, a scanner, a cyanotype - all methods of using light to create. Perhaps if a dataset was trained on ONLY photographs, then only used that data to create new images - technically that might be photography? I mean, it started as captured light, then become a digital diffusion. Anyway, AI will be accepted as a part of photography, a tool to alter and enhance (like Photoshop), however, I don’t think pure AI images will ever be accepted into photo shows.

Anyway, I spent the past week at a lakehouse going for hikes in the woods and enjoying nature, and as a photographer - taking a lot of pictures. I used a photo as an image prompt and then attempted to describe it to see if I could get a photo-like output. The first prompt is below, however I did remix it quite a bit.

Fonts In MidJourney

Don’t Use GTP

A little warning on this post. Usually I am a nice and helpful guy, but time to time I need to go on an angry rant, lol... GPT is an amazing AI technology, and incredibly helpful for everything from communication to coding, but it is NOT for MidJourney. When I posted...

Willow Dog Runs

I have a little corgi puppy that I adore, but she is a bit crazy. We like taking her for hikes in the woods, but she seems to think the point of hiking is to run at full speed, like it's a race, gotta win! It makes me laugh, and so I wanted to make a flicker animation...

Tutorial: Batcher, For Batching

So I just made a new tool in Prompter called… Batcher… and It does exactly what you'd think, you know, it batches, duh. If a prompt builder is designed to create one prompt, why not have one to create TONS of prompts to pick from?! Typing sucks. Check a box next to...
