You can now find my AI content at fabienb.ai on Instagram. I have had my Instagram account @fabienb since the platform launch in 2010, and I always refused to create and manage a separate account. Mainly because it would have been too much work.
Even if I was publishing diverse content like travel, portrait or street photography, my main account still represented my work as a photographer. So it made sense to keep it at one and still run it this way.
With the rise of AI, at first I thought I could make photo-like images and post them onto the same account. I published a series of AI portraits there.
But this AI imagery is no longer representative of my photography. It can be somehow inspired by it, in the sense that I use my photography skills to drive my image creation. But it is definitely not the same.
Therefore, here comes the new account fabienb.ai. For which I also purchased a new domain, fabienb.ai (not pointing to anything just yet).
Restarting everything from 0 followers, but I believe it is the right decision.
The new home for everything AI will feature exactly that: AI creations. In the beginning, most of the images will still be reminiscent of photographs and try to be more realistic. Mainly to drive the followers of my main account to the new one and make the content they are familiar with.
But it will surely become a lot more experimental soon. With design, art, illustration (a bit like my calendars, and more experimental) making their way into the account. The AI scene and tools are developing so quickly that it’s unlikely I can remain stuck in one niche for too long.
Here is the first post, at https://www.instagram.com/p/CqvQ52CMkl0/
As you can see, I am also publishing the prompt I used to create the image. People still look for ideas to improve their image creation with AI, so I’ll add the prompts to help with that. Maybe you can reverse-engineer my “secret formula” from there!
There is not much else to add at the moment. I hope I will see you all on fabienb.ai and you will show the same support you have kindly sent my way all these years.
It’s a new chapter of my content creation that I find extremely exciting right now.
See you there!
