In this beautifully illustrated and inspiring new book--"Photoshop Lightroom 2 Adventure" -- award-winning photographer and best-selling author Mikkel Aaland gives you a hands-on, guided tour of Lightroom 2.0. Aaland shares the knowledge, techniques, and stunning photographs from his adventure in the wilds of Tasmania, where he led 18 colleagues and a team of Adobe experts on a Lightroom 2.0 road test.
"The stars aligned perfectly to make this adventure a smashing success," explains Aaland. "First, Tasmania exceeded all our expectations, and we were like kids in a candy store shooting non-stop for 14 days. Working with Adobe to help improve Lightroom was deeply satisfying. We truly went to the edge of the world to road test an amazing tool for digital photographers, and Lightroom met and exceeded our expectations."
Adds Aaland: "The world-class photographers on the team weren't paid, but they worked their butts off and not only provided valuable feedback to Adobe, but produced stunning images as well."
