@1roomstudio  - thanks for bringing this up again, I missed it the first time. Indeed microphone placement is definitely important for atmosphere and reality in recordings.
On location I mostly use a Roland R-09HR handheld - and play around with locating the thing in hallways, churches, caves, forests, seaside, tunnels etc... so much to discover. It has two built in microphones, not exactly separated with ear distances, but it gives a fine stereo picture.

This book I enjoyed and can recommend
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35543.Here_There_and_Everywhere - memoire of Geoff Emerick, recording engineer of ao The Beatles
recommending https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/How_Music_Works "How music works", book by David Byrne.
