Small Business Owners: Enhance your Social Media Content With Free High-Quality Photography

As a small business owner, I understand there are priorities when allocating monthly or quarterly budgets and probably one area you think last to invest in is creativity. In this particular case, photography. There are so many great reasons to invest in branded photography, but if your budget is helping you to grow other areas of your business now, that’s great; the primary goal is to solidify the production structure of your business, right?

A stable production structure should help you increase your income and budget; therefore, investing in other areas, such as creative photography, can be possible. But for the time being, if you are allocating your budget to other areas, you can still have some good high-quality photography that can help you enhance your social media content. And the best part, they are commercially free to use.

Reconnect With Nature Intelligence to Fuel Creativity

I’ll be lying if I said I do not have mixed feelings about Ai art generator Midjourney. Last month I experienced Midjourney for the first time, which was quite interesting and scary. As I mentioned in my previous post, it was an amazing-threatening-scary experience. It’ll be interesting to hear what are the founders’ thoughts and the direction they want to take with this project. I suppose they are trying to feed the machine and learn more about how people use Midjourney to explore creativity for now, or who knows…

Even with mixed feelings, I think it is a great technology that will help creatives reduce production time in some areas of design/creativity, allowing creatives have more time to do what they love. However, although Ai art generators may help creatives or anybody to create concepts in a few seconds using only text prompts, I think it is important not to forget about nurturing creativity as humans.

Ai Art Generators: My First Experience

Last month there was too much commentary online about the Artificial Intelligence (Ai) art generators that are coming out, or at least that is what the social media algorithm told me. It only took me a couple of interactions with the algorithm to start bombarding me with relative content to Ai art generators, and there are some great discussions about the subject. 

As a new technology, for most artists and creatives, it feels like a threat to the industry; for the rest, it is a great tool to improve workflow and reduce production and conceptualizing time. After reading more in deep, I could not keep out of the loop and give it a try to experience in my own skin.
