Author and photographer Gordon Laing presents 100 of his own images, along with expert commentary, tips, and tricks, in this detailed and accessible book, entitled In Camera: How to Get Perfect Pictures Straight Out of the Camera. The hardcover volume, published by the Octopus Group under the Ilex Press imprint, helps photographers of all levels understand their cameras' capabilities and master exposure, composition, and focus, in order to capture beautiful, striking photos--without expensive equipment, post-processing, or Photoshop.

Laing teaches you how to push the limits of your camera and create the perfect shots under any conditions, using only your own skills and the settings, modes, and features of your camera and flash. The images he shares, all of which are JPEGs, have been captured with a wide range of different mirrorless cameras; full details on these models and the settings used are provided, in order to give you a whole picture of each scenario and the photographer's technique. Each example affords novice, intermediate, and advanced shooters an opportunity to learn something, whether they're shooting with mirrorless, DSLR, or advanced point-and-shoot cameras.

His in-depth review website,, has garnered a huge following of readers interested in its expert, impartial, real-world tests of new models. It's entirely possible that Mr. Laing has captured images with more different cameras than any other living photographer.

Book: In Camera: How to Get Perfect Pictures Straight Out of the Camera is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent presentation of photography techniques I found this book to be an excellent presentation of photography techniques. I really liked the emphasis on doing things in-camera, rather than relying on post processing. Great overview of composition techniques and other considerations for getting a great shot. I learned a lot about long exposure photography, which I've never tried. Great discussion of the creative process around choosing a vantage point, lenses, apertures and shutter speeds. And of course the photography is excellent. It has definitely inspired me to go out and try some of these techniques myself!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting, but nothing new Nice photography but nothing new. I'm 72 and even with my best reading glasses the font was way too small.
