I, typically, do not touch/modify/manipulate photos taken on my Nikon D750. This is mostly because I like spending more time learning how to take good photos than learn how to improve them later on. I am also too lazy :)
Recently, I noticed, in the Develop module of Adobe Lightroom CC, that when I switched from "Adobe Standard" to "Camera Standard" under "Camera Calibration", the photo looked similar to how it showed up in my camera (and, indeed, to the actual scene). I have never even noticed this setting until now :( I found tons of articles on how to calibrate for a camera but there are conflicting or misleading details.
What is the correct setting for this field? Does it need to be adjusted from one camera to another?
On my Nikon D750, the color profile is set to 'sRGB'. Should I leave this as such or switch to "Adobe RGB" for better color reproduction (or matching in Adobe Lightroom)?
I know that sRGB is the most widely used profile online, and unless one is using a wide-gamut monitor is a safe bet. But why is Lightroom then setting the color profile under camera calibration to "Adobe Standard"?
If you are a photojournalist is changing this setting considered "manipulating" the photo?
If camera calibration is available only to interpret RAW images from a given camera properly, what's the correct way to set this field? Or should I leave it as such (to "Adobe Standard")?
