Mikkel Aaland is an award wining photographer, popular workshop leader and author of
fifteen books on digital photography and post-production. He has been at the forefront of digital photo technology since its beginnings. Aaland has been a pioneer of digital photography ever since his interest was aroused when world famous American photographer Ansel Adams told of his fascination for digital photos from space during an interview in 1980. Aaland began writing about digital photography for the Swedish periodical Photo and for American Photographer, later being engaged as a consultant for TV programmes and guest columnist for www.newsweek.com. Aaland was also a non-paid advisor in the original development of Adobe Photoshop Elements and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and has authored numerous books on both applications. Recently he authored the two Adobe Press titles:
Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 by Video and
Adobe Photoshop CS5 Techniques for Photographers. At this Meetup Aaland will show us his personal workflow using Lightroom 3 and Photoshop CS 5 using images from his new pictorial book "A Year on a River in Norway".
