I found myself deep into the Midjourney rabbit hole. And my goodness how much I enjoy it 🙂
There’s been a proliferation of creative AI lately. Dall-E, Midjourney, Stable Diffusion and Craiyon are maybe the first iterations of an entire new creative ecosystem. And one that is already producing mindblowing results.
For my latest video, I picked Midjourney because it seemed at first glance a perfect match to my style, but it doesn’t mean I think Midjourney is better than the competitors.
By the way, you can follow me here (but you can only see what I made public)
And here I showcase what Midjourney can do but also try to recreate one of my recent images (from the Fujifilm 150-600mm video) to see if this Artificial Intelligence can do a better job.
And I also show you some of my other creations, particularly with landscape, portraits and street photography, which is where I think the technology really shines.
But if the results are so good, is this the end of Photography? Hmmm… Not so fast!
Maybe it’s because I’m an artist myself, but I see more potential than threat here. More in the video.
As usual, here’s the direct link in case the embed doesn’t work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAsVgiUHEFU
As you can see in the video, the AI works by digesting a few words and returning what it “thinks” is the appropriate image. For all the images I share I’m also including the prompts that were used, which seems to be very useful to everyone who want to give this a go.
You should look at the Midjourney manual for the extra parameters, like aspect ration, engine, etc. They all make a difference in the end result!
I had great fun experimenting with Midjourney and making this video. Please enjoy!
