A group of friends during Diwali (Copilot) consistent great photos with AI

Exactly a year ago, I published my proven ChatGPT formula to achieve consistent great ‘photos' with AI (Midjourney). It has helped me produce many very good-looking, realistic images.

Before we dive in, as I did in the original post, I...

Generative AI technologies coming to Luminar Neo
22nd August 2023

I had written a different article introducing you to the new generative AI technologies soon to be integrated into Luminar Neo. But then I thought about having that digested by AI to see if I could rephrase some long or overtechnical sentences. And you know what?

London 1 Gigapixel photo panorama skyline Fujifilm
10th August 2023

I have been thinking about creating a 1 gigapixel photo for a while. It's not an entirely new concept to me. About 15 years ago, in Florence, with a company called Centrica (not the energy firm), we turned the masterpieces of the Uffizi gallery into digital at an incredibly high resolution. For example, we took dozens of shots of Botticelli's Venere and then stitched them together to create this gigapixel photo that...

Midjourney Professional Photographer Vs Artificial Intelligence AI Digital Portrait
1st September 2022

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 entirely new creative ecosystem. And one that is already producing mindblowing results (and sparkling controversies). For my latest video, I picked Midjourney because it seemed a perfect match to my style at first glance,...

Burnt Banksy NFT, a digital artist perspective
10th April 2021

NFTs, the acronym tripping off everyone's tongues these days. We might have a certain shredded Banksy artwork to thank for that surge in interest, but allow me to share my own perspective on this whole situation. Brace yourself; there might be a hint of bias (ahem, towards preserving art!), but I'll try my best to keep things balanced. Navigating the crypto-verse can be a bit overwhelming for the uninitiated.
