    This review is from: In Camera: Perfect Pictures Straight out of the Camera (Hardcover)

    I’m a fan of Laing’s in-depth camera reviews and wanted to support him since I haven’t bought him a coffee. For me, the book is an artistic supplement to the reviews of mostly micro four-thirds bodies. Mr. Laing presents a gorgeous photo alongside the camera and lens used as well as setting specifications. There is page-long summary of what he did and how he did it to get the story behind the shot. I have read the book cover to cover and I’ve gone back to it for shots from a certain camera (I noticed many low light shots are Sony bodies) and shots of certain scenes. Some photos span two pages, worth every square inch. It really does inspire you to not only get out there and take some shots, but also to take your time to get to know your camera and tweak the settings on the spot instead of relying on post production. Gordon sounds like a techie gearhead on his podcast and in his reviews, so it the book is a great opportunity to see his artistic side. I think it will appeal to both types of photographers, the tech-loving types and the artistic types alike.
