Midjourney 3.0 – Becoming a Pro Prompt Photographer

I wanted to try to combine GPT-3 and Midjourney to impersonate as a pro prompt photographer and create realistic photos that could be mistaken for being real photos taken by a human.

So I got advice on camera, camera settings, lighting and aspect ratios from GPT-3 and used them to create advanced prompts in Midjourney


How did I get advice from GPT-3?

After instructing the AI that it was a professional photographer I simply used the following commands in GPT-3:

How do I take a good photo of a cityscape?

The advice i got for a Cityscape Photo was:

DSLR camera, Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens, ISO 150, shutter speed 1/125s 

How do I take a good profile photo of a person?

The advice i got for a profile photoshoot, was:

DSLR, 50mm lens f/2.8, shutter speed 1/60, soft light source

What were the objectives?

Then i took these advice from the GTP-3 AI over to Midjourney and created a prompt to try to pretend that i was going to take a real photo of my objectives that was:

  • Outdoor winter shot of The White Walkers from Game of Thrones
  • A portrait shot of a Daenerys Targaryen
  • A cityscape of the Lost city of Atlantis
  • A Wildlife shot of Vecna from Stranger Things

The Results


White Walkers from Game of Thrones:

This was scary good. I really like how realistic the image turned out, the lighting is perfect and the White Walkers look spot on.

So really impressed how this did turn out.


A portrait shot of a Daenerys Targaryen:

WOW! This just blew my mind. Midjourney has really improved faces in this new version. It is almost too good, scary, similar to both Emilia Clarke and Daenerys Targaryen.

I was so impressed by this one, my favorite from this session.


A cityscape of the Lost city of Atlantis: 

This one also turned out great. I like the underwater look and feel to it. The city looks like it could be from the lost city of Atlantis. The details are just stunning. 


Vecna from Stranger Things: 

This one also turned out great. I like how Vecna looks in this image, and the Stranger Things feel to it. The lighting and colors are perfect. But the camera settings did not really work here.


My testing so far, as you can see in the video, is just positive.  The results are just amazing. This is a new level of AI Art generation, and it blows Dall-E 2 out of the water if you ask me.

Can Midjourney impersonate as a pro photographer? 

Yes, I think it can in some scenarios, but we will have to wait and see. 

So I see this as a big step forward for Generative AI art yet again. And let’s see where this is going when the new Midjourney version 4 is live.
