      Midjourney can envision photography across styles and genres when provided with prompts describing camera techniques, lighting, detailed subjects, settings, composition, color, and mood. Thoughtful photographic prompts allow you to realize both real and imagined images.

      Using Midjourney to generate realistic photography:

      • Specify a camera type like “DSLR”, “35mm”, “iPhone photo” to set the style.


      • Indicate lighting such as “golden hour”, “night photography”, “harsh midday light” to control mood and shadows.


      • Suggest photographic techniques like “shallow depth of field”, “motion blur”, “panning”, “macro”, etc.


      • Describe the subject in detail – poses, expressions, outfits, colors, etc. The more visual info the better.


      • Set the scene clearly – location, backdrop, props, weather, season, time of day. This establishes the context.


      • Use compositional terms – rule of thirds, leading lines, symmetry, patterns, framing, etc.


      • Request realistic styles like “photojournalistic”, “artistic portrait”, “fashion editorial”, “documentary”.


      • Mention color palettes like “muted earth tones”, “moody black and white”, “neon signs at night”


      Some examples:
