Midjourney v6 just came out, kind of a Christmas present to all AI aficionados.You may have noticed that I use some stunning images in this blog and in my newsletter (to which you should subscribe, of course).

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,...

GFX100 now 400 megapixel
26th November 2020

Oh yeah, 400 megapixel images are now a thing (408, to be precise). I mean, You could already produce 400 megapixel images (and beyond) by stitching images together. But you couldn’t take a single 400 megapixel shot. And now, thanks to the latest firmware update for the GFX100 medium format camera, it’s real. The GFX100 was already capable of shooting 102 megapixel images. But today Fujifilm released a new firmware update that...

The Gatwick Fiasco
22nd December 2018

The Gatwick Fiasco. Or how the second largest and busiest airport in the UK couldn’t handle a drone alert and ruined the Xmas plans of 150.000 people. Including me. I’m sure you all heard what happened a few days ago. Alerts of drones flying near the airport runway caused a shutdown of all operations. Every flight on Wednesday got cancelled. And then on Thursday, it happened again when I arrived at the...
