Art Photography to AI
2023-04-19

I am a media editor. For money, sure, but I mean as a person. It is one of my many passions. I have edited probably 2,000 plus videos (commercial, social, interview), a shameful amount of photographs (nature, art, real estate) – and somehow it has never lost its appeal. I always seek things that I find to feel magical: Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, OneWheel! I think there is magic in editing, like, I can turn something into something else. My hand is in it… I love to shoot – but most of the joy I get is in front of my PC working up the final piece.

Okay, romanticized chatter aside, I wanted to test MidJourney V5 by describing a photograph I made. I have done this with all the old versions and many did (what I thought was) quite well, but I picked a weird edited art image from my recent work (on the left) this time to toss the AI a strange curveball. I will say, I was incredibly shocked at how well it handled the prompt, but also the many other beautiful variations that I am not showing here. I picked this one (on the right) because it was similar to my vision, but also a new thing.

By the way, this post is not some comparison of AI to photography, or about skill or anything like that – just a fun example of seeing how two different creative mediums can… create.
