Photographer and author Mikkel Aaland is the quintessential early adopter, always
one of the first to master new digital photography software--and to wring every
bit of functionality out of it in the process. Shortly after the public beta
release of Adobe (R) Lightroom (TM) software, a digital imaging workflow solution
for professional photographers, he devised the ultimate road test to put Lightroom
through its paces in the field: Adobe Lightroom Adventure 2006.



Aaland invited eleven acclaimed photographers to join him in Iceland, from July
28 to August 5, 2006. This intrepid crew--joined by three top Icelandic photographers--is
shooting by day and using Adobe Lightroom beta to import, select, develop, and
showcase their large volume of digital images each night. Adobe is represented
by four imaging specialists who will both shoot and assist other photographers
as they work with both the Lightroom and Photoshop applications. The journey
and a sampling of the resulting photographs are chronicled in the Lightroom
Adventure blog at http://digitalmedia.oreilly.com/adventure.
And Aaland is capturing the lessons learned in the field for his book on Adobe
Lightroom, to be published by O'Reilly Media in early 2007.



Premium sponsors for the Lightroom Adventure are Adobe, ExpoImaging, the Iceland
Tourist Board, Icelandair, Lowepro, and O'Reilly. Additional sponsors supporting
the event are Epson, Fosshotel, Graystone Travel, Hertz, the Oflun Group, SanDisk,
and SAS Radisson 1919 Hotel.



The photographers joining Aaland in Iceland for the Lightroom Adventure are:

From the beaches of the eastern seaboard to the Great Plains, and from the wetlands
of the south, to the towering sequoias of the west, America and its pristine parks
have always been hailed as top destination sites for photography enthusiasts and
their families. Canon U.S.A., Inc. and the American Park Network continue to help
define the relationship between photography and the great outdoors with the introduction
of a free photography workshop program on select dates throughout the summer in
Yosemite, Grand Canyon and Yellowstone National Parks. These programs will be
artfully hosted and instructed by a select few of the world renowned Canon Explorer
of Light photographers including Adam Jones and Lewis Kemper, along with other
Canon-selected photographers such as Rob and Ann Simpson. What's more, the
Canon Photography in the Parks Photo Contest returns this year to offer photographers
the chance to display their work and win prizes in the categories of landscape
and wildlife photography in the parks.



From June 1st to September 29th, photographic enthusiasts are encouraged to submit
their favorite photographs from an American park to the Canon Digital Learning
Center. Winning photographs in the categories of landscape and wildlife will win
a trip to the participating parks of their choice, along with a full suite of
Canon photographic equipment. By logging onto the Canon Digital Learning Center
at www.usa.canon.com/dlc,
potential winners will not only have the opportunity to submit their photos, but
can also peruse the Web site to explore the various educational resources that
Canon has to offer for novices and advanced photographers alike.



With the help of the Canon Explorer of Light program, park visitors will have
the opportunity to participate in free daily guided visual photographic journeys.
Additionally, Canon will loan participants top-tier digital camera equipment to
capture those awe-inspiring sights at no additional cost. Aspiring photographers
will learn the tips and tricks to taking great outdoor photos and experience hands-on
training using some of the same equipment that professional photographers use.
Evening programs are also offered, providing visitors the rare opportunity to
spend time with the Explorers of Light, view stunning imagery, ask questions,
and receive prints and a CD of their own photos.
