In Camera: How to Get Perfect Pictures Straight Out of the Camera (English Edition) Kindle电子书
With amazing low-light capabilities, incredible definition, intelligent autofocus and a host of other features, digital cameras have now become so powerful that they have left their users behind.
Most photographers can take competent shots in a range of conditions, or fix imperfect exposures in Photoshop or Lightroom, but very few have the skill to push their cameras to the limit and capture the perfect shot, under all conditions, with no post-processing required.
In Camera is the perfect way to take your photography to that level; to master your camera, understand light, exposure and composition, and make amazing photographs, whatever your camera, without cheating after the event.
One hundred of Gordon's beautiful photos are given with his own expert commentary; full settings and camera details are included, and a host of tips and tricks let photographers of any level learn something from every example. The shots are taken with a wide range of cameras, and the emphasis is on getting results by improving your own skills, not wasting money on expensive equipment.

Do note that Mr. Laing studiously chooses which film simulations he applies in camera, and may also dial in adjustments to contrast or saturation in the camera's JPEG parameters before shooting.. One can think of this technique as pre-processing, as opposed to post-processing. Or, one could simply consider it to be skillful photography. His approach with JPEGS is not simply to put the camera on automatic, then point and shoot JPEGs without the photographer's input. Instead, he employs a thinking photographer's workflow to produce a beautiful JPEG in camera.
Such a technique, while using the sometimes disdained JPEG, encourages the photographer to slow down. He requires knowledgeable adjustments to the exposure and JPEG parameters before shooting, instead of shooting RAW and pushing sliders in post-processing.
The book is well-printed, the images are beautiful, and it's a "two thumbs up" purchase for the photo enthusiast.
First, the coffee-table aspect of the book. Laing is a world traveler and presents in this collection images from around the world. Most of the one hundred shots come with an introduction to the place of origin and a bit of history. If this book were nothing more than that, Laing's travels and musings would be well worth the purchase- but we have yet to enjoy the elements designed for his main audience- photographers.
Following his brief introductions to the subject, Laing goes into tremendous detail about how each image was shot. Unlike many texts that suggest that the artist approached the shoot with complete premeditation and control, Laing steps into his environment and begins evaluating the variables that will create different images. He clearly spends hours at many of his shoots, changing angles, settings and every imaginable variable, often choosing the best image well after the shoot. Laing writes all about the process of photography, only addressing the product when the process in completed. This is the genius of his book- it's about methodology, premeditated trial-and-error- no, not error, trial-and thoughtful reflection of results. You don't follow a step-by-step algorithm for a great shot; rather, you work the image with your hardware, the camera's software options, and your own creativity.
Laing will likely affect you with his style and techniques. Two that most impressed me were his use of monochromatic images and his long-exposure shooting.His use of grayscale was fascinating not solely because of his final images, but for the reasons that he chooses to use grayscale in the first place. A better understanding of what sort of subjects and shooting situations suggest grayscale shooting was a great takeaway of this book. And though it is obvious that long exposure times are required for night shots and smoothing moving water of waterfalls, Laing's use of this technique extends far beyond these obvious applications and produces images that are stunningly beautiful and unique.
If there is a criticism to offer of this book, it's about the layout. There is no logical sequence in its presentation, which lends the coffee-table analogy to its format- this is a book that you can pick up and browse in parts. But while not a textbook, this is a book from which to learn, and there is plenty of material from which to glean information. The random nature of the presentation thus necessitates a lot of reiteration- an obvious example are the many descriptions of the ND filters. While grouping of common topics could have cut down on repetition and also created a concentrated section from which he could build in complexity, it would also have felt more "textbookish", and perhaps Laing was looking to avoid that feel.
In Camera is a book that will inspire as well as train, and for non-photographers, it will present beautiful images and brief stories that can be enjoyed by all. Superb and beautiful book- and I'm looking forward to his next one!
The EXIF data for each picture is the upper left. Up front, there is a thumbnail picture index.
Most pictures were shot with a wide-angle lens. I guess it helps to get in close in front of tourists and passing vehicles and other unwanted details.
