The world of technology is constantly evolving, and it’s fascinating to see what’s new on the horizon. I stumbled upon an intriguing article this morning highlighting the potential risks of AI systems that could outsmart humans and their impact on society and humanity. While AI can seem far-fetched and unrelated to photography, it’s becoming increasingly relevant in the industry.

On Youtube, photographers like Vanessa Joy and Taylor Jackson have been discussing how AI is transforming the photography industry and the impact it could have on their clients. On the one hand, AI has the potential to save time and streamline workflow by making editing quicker and more efficient. However, some photographers are concerned that it could lead to changing client expectations and put pressure on them to adopt new technology to remain competitive.

While AI is a game-changer, it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution. Some photographers prefer manual editing or prioritise creativity and intuition over speed and efficiency. Additionally, while AI is becoming more advanced, it still can’t replace the artistry and skill of a human photographer fully.
Photographers need to understand both the benefits and limitations of AI and determine how they can strike a balance that works for them. While there’s no denying that AI is changing the industry, it’s ultimately up to photographers to decide how they want to incorporate it into their professional lives.

As for me, I’ve adopted some AI tools into my workflow and find them incredibly convenient. While there are concerns about AI replacing photographers altogether, that’s a topic for another day.
