Understand your camera's capabilities. Master the skills of exposure, composition and focus. Take amazing photos; no post-processing, no Photoshop, just your own vision.
With amazing low-light capabilities, incredible definition, intelligent autofocus and a host of other features, it's fair to say that digital cameras have now become so powerful that they have left many of their users behind. Most photographers are able to take competent shots in a range of conditions, or fix imperfect exposures in Photoshop or Lightroom, but very few have the skill to really 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 photos are given 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, including mid-range, compact and mirrorless models, and the emphasis is on getting results by improving your own skills, not wasting money on expensive professional-level equipment and software.
