35mm film, with a stronger emphasis on contrast.

ChatGPT + Midjourney and Prompt Generators
Just let ChatGPT do the job and generate Midjourney prompts for you:
Here are the formulas:
- Formula 1:
image to prompt:: 5 descriptive keywords:: camera type:: camera lens type:: time of day:: style of photograph:: type of film
- Formula 2:
image to prompt:: 5 descriptive keywords:: type of photography:: lens:: distance:: subject:: direction:: type of film
Another really helpful tool is the MidJourney Prompt Helper which gives you amazing good style approaches.
