Understanding AI's Role in Photography

Is AI dominating photography? That is a question and been buzzing around, but the answer is probably not. But AI is silently assisting photographers in ways we might not even notice.

AI, short for Artificial Intelligence, has become significant in both photography and technology lately. Some worry that AI might take away the jobs of photographers, but this fear often comes from not understanding what AI is and what it does.

AI comes in different forms and has various uses in photography. It is basically using computers in a smart way to do things better. Like, in smartphone cameras, it helps by adjusting settings to take nicer photos based on what it sees. And in technologically advanced cameras, it makes focusing on moving things more accurate.


In editing, AI is a game-changer. AI can improve colors and remove unwanted elements from photos. It makes editing quicker and more accurate. But it is important to know that many of these techniques existed before, but AI just makes them quicker as well as easier.

Generative AI, another type of AI, can craft new images or modify existing ones. While some worry about AI being misused, it is just a tool. Its impact relies on how people choose to use it, just like any other tool.

AI offers many opportunities, but there are also risks if it is not used properly. That is why following rules and ethics is important. As photographers, we can use AI to help us, but we must make sure our work stays honest and true.

It can be said in brief that AI might free us up to focus more on what we love: taking photos.
