This case study showcases a collaborative project between Digital West Media, Inc., the publisher of DesertUSA, an online publication specializing in desert-related content, and Midjourney, an advanced AI image generation tool. The project aimed to craft captivating visuals for an article showcasing “The Mizpah Hotel: The Most Haunted Hotel in America.”

The Mizpah Hotel, a renowned haunted establishment, has long been shrouded in eerie tales of supernatural occurrences. Among its most famous specters is The Lady in Red, a ghostly presence said to roam its historic halls. While countless photographs showcased the grandeur of the hotel itself, there was a missing piece in the puzzle—the visual representation of The Lady in Red herself. With no known photographs of this spectral figure, I used Midjourney, a cutting-edge AI image creation tool, to bring her haunting presence to life.

Challenge

The challenge was twofold. Firstly, to capture the ethereal essence of The Lady in Red as described in numerous accounts, and secondly, to create her image entirely from text prompts without sketches or background blending. This endeavor was crucial in enhancing the storytelling and mystique surrounding the haunted history of the Mizpah.

Process:

  1. Gathering Descriptions: I began by researching and gathering descriptions of The Lady in Red from eyewitness accounts, historical records, and local folklore. These accounts provided invaluable insights into her appearance, attire, and demeanor.
  2. Midjourney AI Image Creation: Armed with these descriptions, I used Midjourney AI to generate the image of The Lady in Red. I provided text prompts that detailed her spectral features, ensuring her appearance aligned with the haunting descriptions.
