Pictures Of Charleston
2023-02-09

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)
