There are so many great resources available on the internet about creating prompts, some even try to sell you their prompts – don’t fall into that trap. You don’t need to buy prompts when there is so much freely available information out there.
I saw this amazing technique for Nick who documented his whole process in his twitter thread. He also plans to share more on his Youtube channel so make sure you follow and subscribe to him on his socials. This post would not be possible without his great work.
What do you need?
In order to be able to follow the below and create your own series of prompts you need to have access to:
- Midjourney – AI Art creation tool run via Discord. You can subscribe to their service but if you are new you’ll get some free credits. If you need to know how to get started here check out this blog “Midjourney – start your journey”
- Discord – you need a free account to be able to use Midjourney
- ChatGPT – of course you need access to ChatGPT for this.
Note: By the time this post was published Midjourney released its v5 model for AI image creation. Below Images are all generated using v4 model but the prompts will work on v5 as well.
Firstly he uses ChatGPT and asks it to create:
Please create a table that breaks down an interior architecture photograph composition into the following key elements, where each of these key elements is a column: Composition, Camera Angle, Style, Room Type, Focal Point, Textures, Detail, Color Palette, Brand, Lighting, Location, Time of Day, Mood, Architecture
Fill the table with 10 rows of data, where: Composition = “Editorial Style photo”
Nick explains that Additive Prompting is dynamic & modular by design, so it works well in the table format. If you’re after something specific, let ChatGPT know at the end of your prompt. For example… …10 rows of data where: Composition = “Editorial Style Photo” Room Type = “Living Room”
You can simply copy the rows or ask ChatGPT will to go a step further, Nick explains: You can copy & paste any row into Midjourney and it’ll work great. Or, you can send a follow-up request and ask: “Please write each row as a comma-separated sentence. Append each sentence with –ar 16:9”
There you go, infinite images with a good Additive Prompt structure and ChatGPT hack. If you want new data, just ask for “10 more rows of data” Now that you have a strong foundation to build off, you can tweak and edit the outputs to whatever you’d like.
Prompt: Editorial Style photo, Eye Level, Traditional, Library/Study, Bookshelves, Wood, Leather, Desk Decor, Artwork, Dark Tones, Pottery Barn, Table Lamp, London Townhouse, Morning, Sophisticated –ar 16:9
