6 Photo Industry Trends We'll See in 2023

Between coming out to the worst of the pandemic, the rise of AI, and people producing and consuming more images than ever before, 2022 has been quite a year for the photography industry. What will 2023 bring to us? This interesting video discusses six trends we will see in the new year. 

Coming to you from Lucy Martin, this excellent video discusses six trends we will likely see in the photo industry in 2023. Certain, the two trends I will be most interested in following are AI image editing and creation. We have already seen a large influx of AI editing programs and tools, and I have found a lot of them legitimately useful. For example, Lightroom's new AI masking has saved me tremendous time and helped me make more precise edits as well. I look forward to seeing what new tools 2023 brings. On the other hand, we have seen an explosion of AI image generators, and how this will affect the industry and how photographers work remains to be seen. We could see anything from photographers using AI mood boards to plan shoots to stock images generated entirely on the fly and everything in between. Either way, 2023 will be quite exciting! Check out the video above for the full rundown from Martin.

Photography is dead.

Never so alive. Just in a different way. First major disruption after digital entered the scene
