I trained my own models for DCGAN.
I first tried with the instagram pictures of one of my favorite photographer, Hamada Hideaki.
I used the Instagram scrapper made by Richard Arcega for scrapping the imags.

Therefore, I gave it another go with images with a specific subject, Northern light (a.k.a., Aurora).
I scrapped northern light images from Bing image search.
Since the Bing image scraper provided in ml4a-guide/utils didn’t work for some reason, I made my own scraper and scrapped about 2000 images of northern light.
