Adobe Lightroom/Photoshop Adventure 2008

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Adventure 2008: Tasmania

In April, 2008, a group of internationally renowned photographers will travel to the end of the world, literally, to the remote island of Tasmania. Their mission is to road test specialized digital photography software designed by Adobe while capturing images from one of the world's most mysterious and varied geographic locations.

Using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, photographers will upload, sort, keyword, adjust, and output their Raw images while still working in the field. On this page, you can read the stories, see the images, and watch the photographers discuss this challenging assignment. Blog posts will be updated regularly. Mikkel Aaland, project director, will be capturing the lessons learned for his book on Adobe Lightroom, scheduled to be published by O'Reilly Media later this year.
