Hi everyone! I just bought my first camera (Sony XR100 VII), and I would like to thank veresdenialex for introducing me to the realm of possibilities unlocked by Sony Film Simulations.
As a beginner in photography, I have some basic questions that I believe others could benefit from:
How can I better understand the recipes map? What is the difference between soft and hard recipes?
How do I determine which recipe to use in different situations? I understand that there is no one-size-fits-all solution, but having more examples (e.g., with YouTube shorts) of different types of photography (portrait, landscape, street photography, etc.) that convey different emotions (nostalgia, hope, etc.) would be helpful.
How should I set the exposure (ISO, shutter speed, and aperture)? Should I start with the lowest ISO and then adjust the shutter speed and aperture?
My photos taken in the evening are always of poor quality and appear grainy (I was using AUTOISO). Is there a way to improve them?
