Prompt of the day: chromatic aberration on Kodak portra film

Today, we’re introducing a new feature. Everyday, we’ll post a new prompt that caught our eye.

We saw a prompt shared by Helena Manzanita using the term “chromatic aberration,” also known as color fringing, a distortion when a lens is unable to focus wavelengths of light in the same plane.

Prompt: chromatic aberration, a single light flickers overhead in a room of mirrors, shot on Kodak Portra 800 film — style raw

Results from Midjourney 5.1

The images generated didn’t adhere to a single light overhead. It also didn’t yield a chromatic aberration. The images look stunning with no distortions. The bokeh looks incredible.

And the look definitely looks like the warmth of film. According to The Darkroom, Portra 800 film “has warm tones, very good exposure latitude, and while its grain is more noticeable it’s still very pleasant looking. Its higher iso makes it ideal for lower light shooting.” That certainly seems to fit here. But we haven’t tested on Midjourney whether Kodak Portra 800 produces different results than other types of film in the prompts.

We think the results are amazing. It confirms our earlier assessment that photographers have good reason to be scared, with the advances in AI. Models and HMUA, too. The images, including humans figures, generated using AI are becoming more realistic everyday.
