Pictures Of Charleston

I’m a photographer. Like, love cameras so much that I got a master’s degree in photography. I make a lot of weird and conceptual art, but I also just enjoy making pretty pictures. Experiencing those moments and freezing them in time makes me happy. I moved to Charleston, South Carolina a few years ago, and it is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. The old cobblestone streets, vibrant beach sunsets, the quaint old buildings. I’ve taken so many pictures down here and thought, well, how would MidJourney do at this?

I spent the day making hundreds of fake photographs of Charleston in MidJourney. I basically would pick a theme like sunsets or sandy beaches, added “photography of” and “in Charleston” and then used various photographic terms like “long exposure” or “depth of field” and came up with a pretty great final collection. I was amazed. They felt like home, but were not. They seemed like places I knew, but they didn’t exist… We are almost at that place where AI imagery can almost feel like a photograph. Below is a grid of pictures of Charleston – half of them are my photographs and half of them are AI.

(FYI: Reading like a book, my photography is 2, 5, and 6)

Breaking MidJourney with 50MP

Any mad scientists here? For the past few days I have been running the same prompt over and over in an attempt to break MidJourney - and I finally succeeded… well… kinda. I created a 50 megapixel image (16,320 x 3,072px) and then MidJourney said, “Nah man, you done!”...

Mixing Different Versions

You can mix two different versions of MidJourney with the new Vary Region feature! Want to give new life to an old creation? Just find an old image in your gallery, copy the job ID, then use the /show command to bring it back in Discord - then you have the option to...

InPainting, aka Vary Region

When I am wrong I admit to it, and guess what - I was wrong. The royal we have been wanting and begging MidJourney to add inpainting for what feels like eons. As many of you know, I am a HUGE advocate and word-spreader for MidJourney BUT what I also did is constantly...

One Year Later

I just saw this pop up in my memories and it gave me a good feeling. A year ago today I released the first version of Prompter (the prompt-building spreadsheet) for free just to see if people would use it... I never thought that a year later it would get so much...
