New dall-e 3 by Bing

I recently tested the new image creator engine with the help of artificial intelligence from Bing, powered by DALL-E 3. I must say that I am deeply impressed with the results obtained from the very first generations.

I will describe the impressions I have accumulated after a few days of use:
First of all, I find it to be above stable diffusion in terms of the results obtained. Another important aspect is that it can be used for free up to 15 generations per day. Another interesting thing is that it randomly generates not just one image, but 4 or 2, without me knowing why or when; it simply randomizes using the same prompt (such as midjourney, which offers 4 variations). There are no settings, no complex models like stable diffusion; it’s just a prompt bar, and the result is in a resolution of 1024px x 1024px in jpg format. On the right, there is a tab with the latest generations (“recent”), but not all of them (for example, it won’t contain 15 generations), so I recommend that after each generation, you click on the generated image and download it to avoid losing it from the recent list. Furthermore, some prompts are blocked if they are deemed to contain indecent content, even if there are no explicit words, but rather, the conclusion is drawn based on certain blocked words.

Impact of AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) is already having a significant impact on the photographic industry and photographs. Here are a few ways in which AI is impacting the industry:

Image recognition: AI algorithms can recognize and categorize objects, people, and scenes within photos using machine learning techniques. For example, an AI algorithm can be trained to identify different types of flowers or animals within images, and then use that information to automatically tag and organize a large photo collection. This can save photographers and other users significant time and effort in sorting through and searching for specific images.

AI next chapter

Welcome back! New year, new chapter!

As a photographer, I have always been on the lookout for new and innovative ways to create stunning images. That’s why I am excited to announce that I have started incorporating Artificial Intelligence into my photography process. In this blog post, I will share my experience and some of the incredible possibilities that AI has opened up for the world of photography.
Using AI in photography is still a relatively new concept, but it has the potential to revolutionize the way we create and edit images. I have been experimenting with a number of different AI tools and techniques, and the results have been nothing short of astounding.
One of the most impressive things about AI in photography is its ability to analyze and understand images in a way that humans simply cannot. This allows for a level of precision and detail that would be impossible to achieve through traditional editing techniques.

What is AI in Photography?
AI in photography refers to the use of machine learning algorithms to enhance and automate various aspects of the photography process. This can include things like image processing, object recognition, and even the creation of new images.

Plastic Mask

Hey guys. Finally I have blog on my website. I know it was a while since I post on a blog but I’m coming up with something fresh! Check out the editorial that was published in Malvie Mag vol. 32 (november 2022) featuring beautiful model Teodora Gheorghe and makeup artist Corina Turcu.
I shot this project in august 2021 and it was a challenge for me to blend for the first time CGI in photography.
I spend almost a week learning a new 3D program (Cinema4D) to do this project and I am proud for the results. Lets me show few steps during the production of this project:
