Aaland took 18 professional photographers and five Adobe Lightroom designers to Tasmania in April of 2008 for a 10-day shoot-a-thon. What's clear from the moment you open it is that the book is the direct result of that real-world experience. It's packaged in such a way that you, following along, really feel like you are in the field with the team, trying to edit and adjust the images shot that day. Each photographer's style requires different adjustments: from advanced color control and sharpness to the using the "Library" organizing function. You can flip through the book to look for a problem that is similar to your own, and learn how to solve it in a way that makes it very real by following along with the professionals. The graphics and call-outs are direct and easy to read, and really take you inside the shooter's head. You're trying to make the picture better with them. Or you can just read the book cover-to-cover and learn every lesson.
