These are some of my earliest renders with Stable Diffusion. It has no advanced techniques, no ADetailer, no advanced settings. I didn’t know a lot about what I could do with Stable Diffusion really, but what I did know is that I wanted to explore Stable Diffusion because I got fed up with Midjourney’s increasingly ridiculous content filtering. The content moderation is/was so aggressive that it was putting prompts like “French national swimteam” in shirts and pnts while they swam in the swimming pool.

I posted these to my Instagram and I was really surprised how popular they got. I made my main account on Instagram in April, so I didn’t have a lot of followers on Instagram by May. But the number of likes on these photos were also doubled that of my Midjourney posts.

Since I didn’t know a lot about Stable Diffusion at the time, there wasn’t a whole lot of technique to speak up. That said, I did have a long history of prompting with Midjourney, so that did help me a lot to get the results I wanted. I decided to post these images today not because they are advanced in any way, but I wanted to encourage people who have a long time experience using Midjourney to try out Stable Diffusion; and to not be discouraged by the steep learning curve. Midjourney does a lot of concept expansion for you behind the scenes, so don’t expect instant gratification from extremely simple prompts, but you can get very good results if you prompt properly.

Here are a few techniques I learned from Midjourney that I applied for these renders:

  • Be succinct and descriptive. The length of your prompts will affect the quality of your renders. Without getting into too much detail and/or how to work around the issues of long prompts, you should keep your prompt under 75 tokens. There are special techniques that you can do to have longer prompts but that’s well beyond the scope of this simple tutorial.
  • Diffusion tech depends on training data — if the training data doesn’t exist, then it usually won’t know how to render the image. I didn’t quite know how I could get a good softbox inside Stable Diffusion at the time, but I know that the surfaces inside a plane will naturally create a lightbox. So I placed the men inside a plane in these images — the result is that the men will all have indirect light as their ambient light source, while the main light can come from the window.

And shall we talk about shirtless men? Just ask for shirtless and poof they don‘t wear shirts. No more spending hours fiddling with text prompts in Midjourney so you can focus on what matters most — creating the images you want!
