Join us for an entertaining and educational evening with special guest Mikkel Aaland. Aaland will share lessons from his 35-year professional career as well as highlight his latest photographic project, “The River in Our Backyard”. He’ll also demonstrate his personal workflow using the latest version of Adobe Lightroom, version 4, and Photoshop. “One of the biggest challenges facing photographers today,” explains Aaland, “besides ever lowering revenue streams, is managing an extensive image collection and creating an efficient workflow that takes you from camera to computer to a final destination, be it a print, a book, or the web.”
But workflow isn’t everything, “Quality very much counts,” says Aaland. “And that means knowing how to pull the levers and push the buttons that squeeze out the very best from an image file.” Workflow and quality. Instruction with inspiration. We are in for a great evening!
